, but later opened as a museum in 2000. This is the first and unique museum dedicated to architecture and design in Argentina which is operated by the Argentine central society of Architects.

The building itself was built in 1915 in British style railway construction. Despite its comparatively small space, the museum attracts the eyes on Libertador avenue by its remarkable retro brick style. Whole material used for the construction such as bricks, beams, metal profiles, pipes, pumps, etc., were imported directly from UK.

The museum exhibits architecture, design (industrial design, graphic design, textile, etc) and urban development ongoing projects works. Contains 4 exhibition hall spaces, a stairs hall and a garden space where sculptures and installations are exhibited.
Among sensational past exhibitions, there were “restrospective Frank Lloyd Wright”, “Japanese architecture seen by Argentina” “Design Icon- France-Argentina”.

Adjacent to Recoleta cultural conservation district where you meet Palais de Glass, National Museum of Buenos Aires, Recoleta Cultural Center, MALBA (Latinamerican art museum of Buenos Aires), etc., the MARQ figures as one of the most important locations of the Buenos Aires art circuit. Argentina continues to produce a number of prominent architects and designer such as Clorindo Testa or Cesar Pelli. Also knowing that Buenos Aires has been designated as a design city by UNESCO, the MARQ can not help being an important spot of art circuit in Buenos Aires.
