Tinytour: Museo de Arquitectura y Diseño [Museum of Architecture and Design]

The MARQ is a small building that seems to be used primarily as temporary show space.  It’s the only architecture museum in the country.  The building dates from 1915 and used to be the water tower for the Retiro train station.  It is currently one of the sites of a BIENALSUR contemporary art installation called “House Attack.”

The exhibition, called Invading/Resisting, is also tied to BIENALSUR.  It’s a multimedia collaborative work on the interplay of the actions of humans and the natural world.

This is a Tinytour because it’s a wee space!  You’ll just have to see what’s showing when you’re looking to go.

The MARQ is open Tuesday through Sunday from 1pm to 8pm.  It’s located near Retiro train station.  Admission is free and they have a tiny swag store, and I honestly respect the hustle.
