MUSEUM OF TOMORROW WAS AWARDED THE ‘OSCAR OF MUSEUMS
A symbol of the revitalization of the port area of Rio de Janeiro, the Museum of Tomorrow gained international prominence in October 2016, when it was honored with the Leading Culture Destinations Awards, a British award considered the 'Oscars of Museums'.
Ricardo Piquet, director of the Museum of Tomorrow and president of IDG, received at the Langham London the trophy in the category of Best New Museum of the Year - South & Central America, which considers the institutions inaugurated and/or reformed in the last 15 months. The Museum of Tomorrow was the only representative of South America at the ceremony.
The Museum's well-known architectural project, designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, also stood out at the British award. We are among the three most innovative architectures of the year (Museum Architecture of the Year), along with Tate Modern Switch House, in London, and The Broad, in Los Angeles.
