Boom of museums in Rio

Boom of museums in Rio

22/06/2010

The Rio is a magical moment. In order to carry out the FIFA World Cup in 2014 and the Olympics in 2016 (along with several other international events), tries again and definitely fit into the hall of the great global cities. Makes his mark already internationally recognized, the good economic times in Brazil and its natural vocation for tourism and cultural production. For this, besides the great plan to revitalize its waterfront projects, museums and cultural centers around the city explode

Altogether they are six: Soccer Museum, City of Music, Museum of Image and Sound, Art Museum of Rio, AquaRio (Public Aquarium) and Museum of Tomorrow.

City of Music

Location: Trevo das Palmeiras - Barra da Tijuca
Investment date: R$ 80 million
Investment run: R$ 518 million
Start of works: 2004
Preview Opening: No preview
Office responsible for the project: Christian de Portzamparc (Paris, France)

The new headquarters of the Brazilian Symphony Orchestra and principal place of musical shows of the state of Rio de Janeiro, the City of Music will host the largest concert hall symphony orchestra and opera in Latin America, with up to 1,800 seats. The complex is about 95 thousand square meters and has, in addition to concert halls and chamber music, 13 rehearsal rooms and classrooms. The terrace has a panoramic view of the region, which covers the beach of Barra and the Lowlands Jacarepaguá. The signature is the French architect Christian de Portzamparc. Subject of much controversy, mainly by extrapolating the initial budget, the City of Music today is still to be finalized.

Office responsible for the project: Diller Scofidio + Renfro (NY, USA)

Launched last year, the MIS promises not to pass unnoticed in one of the most famous postcards of the city - Copacabana beach. The museum already exists at the center of town, but the idea is to transfer its collection on the history of televisions, radios and magazines from Brazil to a new building, facing out to sea, along the same theme in other collections currently scattered. With crooked lines and, according to its architects, aims to give a continuation to the vertical boardwalk to the beach, the museum was chosen in an international competition and is signed by the U.S. office Diller Scofidio + Renfro.

The project presented by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava for the Museum of Tomorrow, in the Port Zone of Rio is thicken the list for the new generation of museums that the city plans to finally enter the circuit of global culture. Thought to be a pathway to gain environmental awareness, the visitor will begin at the Atrium Today, dedicated to the current state of knowledge and humanity. Then pass the crossing of Questions. Then, by a "cosmic spiral" begins a journey toward the Earth to the galaxies, plunging into the interior of atoms. At this point, there is a structure similar to the planetary. The last part is devoted to the Weather Station and the Port of Origins - of life development and population growth - the Square now and the Platform of the Future - the latter on economic integration and diversity. The building will still host the Earth Summit, the UN conference on environment in 2012.

Museum of Tomorrow, by Santiago Calatrava
This museum will be the "icon" of the renovated Rio's port area for the Olympics. This is like a cocoon.

I sure hope that the new Museum of Image and Sound in Copacabana is over 100 ft high to try and match up with all the residential buildings surrounding it.

About the "Museum of Tomorrow", what is the purpose of the two tent/hangar-like structures (?) at the north and south of the pier that the museum is to be sited on?
