Rio de Janeiro | Museu da Imagen e de Som | Vários

Recommended Posts

A restricted competition for a new museum in the middle of one of the most iconic places in Rio de Janeiro, the Avenida Atlantica at Copacabana, has just been awarded.
The building will host the Museu da Imagen e de Som (Image and Audio Museum), that as of now is desegregated through the city in separate offices. The new building will host in one place facilities for the conservation and study of the brazilian visual heritage, along with a state-of-art museum.
The competition included the local practice Bernardes & Jacobsen, that has been previously featured on ArchDaily, along with Sao Paulo´s Isay Weinfeld (see his previous works featured on AD), Brasil Arquitetura and Tacoa Arquitetos. On the international side we have the regulars Daniel Libeskind and Diller Scofidio + Renfro, along with the japanese architect Shigeru Ban.
Just when I was writing this post, I found that the competition was awarded to Diller Scofidio + Renfro, at a ceremony held today.
I´ve heard a lot of buzz about this competition in Twitter and Facebook from our brazilian readers, it seems to be generating a lot of debate as of now. And it´s very obvious, as the building will be erected on a very iconic avenue, at a close distance from Museum of Modern Art by Affonse Eduardo Reidy and the Niteroi Contemporary Art Museum by Brazilian master Oscar Niemeyer.
Not much to say about the winning entry by DS+R, it´s just another project along their line. But it´s not just the jury who voted unanimously for their project, they also won a reader´s poll at the main Brazilian news site O Globo.
And Libeskind… seriously?
My vote goes to Isay Weinfeld. And yours?
Images from all the projects so you can be the judge, after the break.

O Lugar eh inspirador e ateh agora nenhum dos projectos explora o Lugar e a Envolvente. Nenhum "diz": Eu pertenco a este Lugar. Sao todos inadequados. O Governo do Rio de Janeiro ou do Brail podia ter uma atitude semelhante ao do Governo de Berlim. Nenhum serve.

Muitas vezes é preciso um rasgo nas fachadas e nas mentalidades para se poder um espaço como este, talvez não se integre na envolvente, não vi as plantas mas parece-me que se vai encaixar bem nos futuros utilizadores do espaço. Não estou a criticar as opiniões anteriores, mas volta e meia sabe bem uma pequena quebra na monotonia urbana.

Como Brasileira e futura arquitecta este é meu favorito: Isay Weinfeld
O cubo que é partido em pedacos combina melhor com os predios ao lado :-)


não sei o que quer dizer com "combina".. não estamos a falar de uma peça de roupa. chamemos as coisas pelos nomes.
pessoalmente, sem mais informação, gosto da proposta dos brasil arquitectura. é diferente qb para um museu mas não me parece que choque com a fachada de rua. propício para um ponto de referência da cidade sem a desfigurar, ao contrário de todas as outras propostas.
