Museu do Amanhã

Rio de Janeiro devotes a new museum to the issue of sustainability.

The Museum of Tomorrow is being built as one of the cornerstones of the Porto Maravilha - a comprehensive urban renewal of the Port Region, promoted by the city of Rio de Janeiro.

Designed by the architect Santiago Calatrava, the building will be a prominent landmark surrounded by gardens, fountains, bike trails and a recreational area.

How can we live? How do we want to live?

Based on these key questions, Curator Luiz Alberto Oliveira approaches the complex subject of sustainability and tries to offer a vision of the way we are changing the world and how we inhabit our planet.

The Museu do Amanhã will display the future based on six major trends for tomorrow: climate change; population growth and increasing longevity; greater integration and diversity; technological developments, the changing biodiversity and expansion of knowledge.

The Museu do Amanhã is scheduled to open in 2015.
