The Lima Art Museum (MALI) announces the launch of an open competition for the design of its new contemporary art wing. The project will include a library, gallery spaces, classrooms, workshops, a café, a public plaza, access to a future metro station, and a landscape proposal for the park where the museum is located. Our goal is to establish the MALI as a new civic and cultural platform in the city, as well as a referent for future competitions regarding the design of public spaces in Lima.
The MALI is a private, non-profit cultural organization devoted to the promotion of the visual arts in Peru. With over seventeen thousand works, it houses the only representative survey collection of Peruvian art in the country.
The museum recently renovated its permanent galleries, housed on the second floor of the historic Exposition Palace, where a selection of works from the permanent collection is exhibited. These galleries survey almost 3,000 years of history, from pre-Columbian textiles and pottery to mid-twentieth century painting. However, the museum’s contemporary art collection, numbering over a thousand works, is still largely kept in storage, making the design of a new wing all the more pressing.

Three unranked finalists will receive 10,000 USD per team.
The total building cost for the project—i.e., the new wing, not the landscape proposal beyond the site—is estimated at 12 – 15M USD (excluding taxes). The architectural fee is 8% of total construction costs.
