Rio's Museum of Tomorrow


Renowned Brazilian architect Santiago Calatrava has revealed designs for Rio de Janeiro’s Museum of Tomorrow, which will form part of the city’s urban regeneration in preparation for hosting the 2016 Olympic Games.

The museum will be part of the Marvelous Port urban design project, which will transform Rio’s historic waterfront into a cultural hub. The museum’s design is inspired by the city’s inhabitants, as well as its most notable landmarks.

In 2007, Calatrava completed a similar project in Valencia, Spain, where he transformed a wasteland into the now thriving City of Arts and Science.
