The Museum of Tomorrow is a science museum where visitors explore possible scenarios for the future on our planet through audiovisual exhibits, interactive installations and games, all based on data from Brazilian and international research institutions.

The museum’s narrative is guided by five central questions: ‘Where do we come from?’, ‘Who are we?’, ‘Where are we?’, ‘Where are we going?’ and ‘How do we want to live together over the next 50 years?’ The museum will encourage reflection about the Anthropocene era, when man began to alter the climate, degrade biomes and interfere with ecosystems.

The permanent exhibition at the Museum of Tomorrow will offer 53 different experiences grouped into five main areas: the cosmos, the earth, the anthropocene, tomorrow and us. Each of the five areas will present visitors with an overview, as well as the opportunity to look deeper into the topics.

Technology is employed to enrich visitors’ experience. A team of over 30 Brazilian and international consultants from a range of areas composed the content of the main exhibition. The museum’s partners include some of the most important science institutions in Brazil and abroad, including The National Institute of Space Research (INPE, by its Portuguese acronym), the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

Located at Pier Mauá, the Museum of Tomorrow is one the anchors of the Porto Maravilha Project. Established to revitalize Rio’s port area, it covers approximately 322 square feet and features outdoor greenspaces, a reflecting pool, a bike path and a recreation area. The museum employs sustainable architectural practices and is seeking LEED certification from the Green Building Council (USGBC). Local natural resources are incorporated in the construction. Water from the Guanabara Bay, for example, will be used for interior climate control and then to supply the reflection pool. Solar panels will be installed on large, moveable, wing-like steel structures on the roof.


Additional Facilities at the Museum of Tomorrow

In addition to the main exhibition area, the museum will feature space for temporary exhibitions, a 400-seat auditorium, a cafe, restaurant and a museum shop. The museum will also house the Laboratory for Exploration of Tomorrow, a space for educational activities and exhibition of projects and prototypes. Reports and other sources of up-to-date information on technological and scientific research on topics related to the museum will be available in the Observatory of Tomorrow. These resources will also be used to update data in the museum’s permanent exhibitions.

The Museum of Tomorrow will offer visitors meaningful, interactive experiences to learn about the complex processes that are transforming our planet, and to understand how our actions now will affect future generations.

Rosewood São Paulo To Open In 2018

First South American property for Rosewood Hotels & Resorts®

Rosewood Hotels & Resorts® has been appointed by Groupe Allard to manage Rosewood São Paulo in Brazil. Scheduled to open in 2018, this will be Rosewood’s first property in South America. Situated in the center of São Paulo, the hotel will be housed in a historic, landmark building which was formerly a maternity hospital.

Rosewood São Paulo will lie at the heart of Cidade Matarazzo, a complex of elegant buildings dating back to the early 20th century, which will be transformed into a stylish development with private residences, high-end stores and entertainment venues. The site is being developed by entrepreneur Alexandre Allard, who previously helped to bring about the renaissance of the House of Balmain. Allard and Rosewood are collaborating on this project with leading international figures such as the Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel, the designer Philippe Starck, and the renowned Brazilian artists Beatriz Milhazes and Saint-Clare Cemin.

Rosewood São Paulo will feature 151 guestrooms and 114 owners’ suites, which will be situated within a vertical park created by Nouvel. Two restaurants, including one located on a veranda overlooking the lush hotel gardens, will be complemented by a bar and a caviar lounge. Recreational facilities will include two swimming pools with one rooftop pool and the other set amongst the landscaped grounds and a large spa with six treatment rooms and a fitness area. Hotel guests will also be able to access an adjoining music studio, screening room and luxury retail stores within the development.

The property will offer event and meeting spaces totalling 100,000 square feet. For special occasions, a listed wedding chapel stands in the grounds of Rosewood São Paulo. The chapel will retain the original architecture with a new stained glass window which has been specially commissioned.

“Rosewood has been waiting for the right opportunity to enter South America and I firmly believe this is it,” says Sonia Cheng, CEO of Rosewood Hotel Group. “As São Paulo is becoming one of the most dynamic cities of the 21st century, so Rosewood will transform this historic property with a contemporary Brazilian energy. We are excited to give this landmark building a new lease of life and that it will continue to be a place of joy and celebration.”

Rosewood’s move into South America follows on from the opening of Rosewood Beijing, the company’s first hotel in China. It forms part of an ambitious global expansion for the company which has announced 13 new hotels under development including Hôtel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hotel in Paris.

“When I discovered Cidade Matarazzo, it was a sleeping beauty waiting to be woken,” says Alexandre Allard president of Groupe Allard. “With its philosophy of A Sense of Place, Rosewood has proved that they recognise the importance of a hotel reflecting its location’s culture and history. I am pleased that Rosewood São Paulo will be the company’s first foray into South America and will stand alongside renowned hotels such as The Carlyle.”

About Rosewood Hotels & Resorts®:
Rosewood Hotels & Resorts® manages 18 one-of-a-kind luxury properties in 11 countries, with 13 new hotels under development. Each Rosewood hotel embraces the brand’s A Sense of Place® philosophy to reflect the individual location’s history, culture and sensibilities. The Rosewood collection includes some of the world’s most legendary hotels and resorts, including The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel in New York, Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas and Hôtel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hotel in Paris, as well as new classics such as Rosewood Beijing. Rosewood Hotels & Resorts targets 50 hotels in operation by 2020.

Rio 2016 reveals ‘Look of the Games’ to mark two years until Olympic opening ceremony

Designs based on Rio’s iconic skyline will adorn the competition venues and colour the city, also featuring on tickets and uniforms

With two years to go until the Olympic Games begin, Rio 2016 is celebrating in style. The ‘Look of the Games’ – the design used for all the event’s visual communications – was launched on Tuesday (5 August). Inspired by the vibrancy of multicultural Rio de Janeiro, with outlines of the city’s landscapes, it represents the coming together of all the Brazilian people.
“We hope that Rio 2016 will be the Games of the people, a memorable celebration of the kind that only we can offer,” said Beth Lula, Rio 2016’s Brand Manager. “The starting point for the new ‘look’ was the Rio 2016 branding, with its essential ingredients of passion and transformation, and its values and attributes.”
The new look will be on display in all the sporting venues and across the city, as well as on tickets, uniforms and licensed products. The goal is to create a celebratory atmosphere and a unique experience for all visitors.
Developed by the Rio 2016 Organising Committee’s in-house design and branding teams, the project took around a year to complete following studies of Brazil’s historical and cultural identity, as well as a photographic immersion in the region’s landscapes. The four football host cities – Belo Horizonte, São Paulo, Brasília and Salvador – are also represented.
The design team produced a visual identity for the Games using images of Rio easily recognised throughout the world, with an organic and all-embracing feel, that gives the impression of a hug, inspired by nature’s beauty and human warmth.
