Our project in Mar del Plata, Buenos Aires, intends to reengineer this utilitarian condition from scratch, creating an economic and low maintenance building with ideal spatial configurations, ample mounting flexibility, and dynamic environment control for both indoor and outdoor exhibition projects.
