The Museum of Tomorrow is open this week in Rio de Janeiro. Designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, the 15,000m2 structure juts out into the Guanabara Bay, surrounded by a reflecting pool, gardens and cycling infrastructure. Its futurist design is inspired by natural forms, and like a living creature, it changes its appearance, thanks to a moving roof.
"The conceptual foundation of the museum is that tomorrow isn't a date on the calendar or a place, it is a collective construction of our civilization," says the museum's curator, the physicist Luiz Alberto Oliveira.
