Architecture Contest

El Paso children’s museum is excited to reveal to the public three concepts for our new building.

Three firms from around the world: KoningEizenberg from Santa Monica, California, Snohetta from Oslo, Norway, and TEN Arquitectos from Mexico City were invited to submit concepts for the new museum coming to the downtown El Paso Arts District.

We encourage the public to explore these concepts and vote for their favorite design approach for the new museum. Public voting starts at noon December 5th, until midnight December 15th.

Although the final museum building may not look like any of these concepts, these renderings help to demonstrate the way each architect team is approaching the design of the new museum.

To see all the concepts you can visit the El Paso Museum of Art from December 5th to December 15th, during their regular hours (Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday & Saturday 9am-5pm, Thursday 9am-9pm & Sunday 12noon-5pm)
