Interview with paula werneck at Monday 22nd of April 2013: DI: What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?
pw : This project searches for different experiences and visual conections through the museum tour. It explores its surroundings and only contemporary art allows it. It's a unique concept where it could only take place in a vivid cultural place.
DI: What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?
pw : Our research for this project started with a local visit to the site and the city so It was possible to understand where the building is located and its surroundings. Also, Buenos Aires has great museums and we tried to adapt ours to this scenario. During our research, it was clear to us that Puerto Madero is a renewed Buenos Aires and our project tries to relate to that by offering a space to contemporary art .
