A Contemporary Art Museum is a building or space for the exhibition of art, usually visual art. Paintings and sculptures are the most commonly displayed art objects; however, drawings, collages, prints, photographs and installation art including other artistic activities, such as performance art, land’art, web art to name a few are also regularly shown. Contemporary art can broadly be defined as art produced at this point in time (now) or after World War II.

The proposal must not only attend to the specific function but the design should also take into consideration the urban insertion and its impact. This Competition hopes to achieve the following:

- Encourage and reward design excellence which integrates function and structure within the art world.
- Research, respond to and highlight the unique aspects of designing an original Contemporary Art Museum.
- To generate the discussion of ideas regarding the functionality of an art exibition space.
- Encourage the employment of sustainable design in all aspects of the proposal.
