Mexico's Tamayo Contemporary Art Museum (Spanish: Museo Tamayo de Arte Contemporáneo), located on Paseo de la Reforma, in Mexico City, was opened in 1981 as a repository for the collection that Rufino Tamayo and his wife Olga acquired during their lifetimes and ultimately gifted to the nation. The museum exhibits its collection of painting, sculpture and photography, and also organizes temporary exhibitions by national and international artists. The architects were Teodoro González de León and Abraham Zabludovsky, renowned Mexican architects.
There are plans to create a new building for the museum: in 2009, an architecture competition for the new building was won by Bjarke Ingels Group in collaboration with Rojkind Arquitectos. The cross-shaped building will occupy a steep hillsidein Atizapan, overlooking the city and incorporate a large viewing platform on the roof. At this time, the plans for a new building have been shelved because of lack of funding.
