The Ministry of Science, Technology and Productive Innovation opened the national competition to design the Science Park.  The more than 8,000 square meter public space will be built at the Ministry headquarters in the former Bodegas Giol. $ 180,000 will be granted to the winning project.

The project — organized by the Central Association of Architects and sponsored by the Argentine Federation of Associations of Architects — will be completed with the building of a public green space intended for recreation use but with special features inviting neighbours to scientific activities. Due to this reason, each proposal must include spaces for scientific content, exhibitions and games. A series of interactive modules will be built along the park, where visitors can understand concepts about motion, forces, energy, water, sensory perception, etc. through games. Additionally, the park area will recreate specific habitats of Argentina.

Finally, the Science Park, will include an amphitheatre of 300 square meters for up to 50 people, exhibition spaces and areas for educational activities.

Proposals can be submitted until March 20, 2014. A prize of $ 180,000 will be awarded to the first winner, $ 90,000 to the second winner and $ 50,000 to the third winner.
