Clipso fabrics installed in a famous Museum in Brazil Project: Museum of Tomorrow
The Museum of Tomorrow (Museu do Amanhã, in Portuguese) is brand new museum, located next to the waterfront at Pier Maua, in Rio de Janeiro’s harbour. This area is currently being revamped for the Rio Summer Games in 2016.
The building was designed by the international and neo-futuristic architect Santiago Calatrava Valls (www.calatrava.com), whose offices are located in Zurich, New York and Doha.
The Museum of Tomorrow takes visitors through five areas, from the creation of the Universe until humanity’s future and mixes science with an innovative design to focus on sustainable cities.
It was inaugurated on 17th December 2015 by Mrs. Dilma Rousseff, President of the Republic of Brazil.
SUnder the direction of our local Brazilian Diarco Produtos Arquitetonicos, the installation of the structure and subconstructures lasted almost a year. The fitting of the Clipso white acoustic stretch ceiling, along with an acoustic absorption material, was completed within 60 days by 8 people.
The joint installation was made thanks to the PVC profiles. Light fittings and hangers were included in the fabric to allow the illumination and the fitting of the impressive LED-pannelled globe.
Santiago Calatrava, the architect, was extremely pleased with the Clipso stretch ceilings.
Mr Marcos Holtz, the acoustic consultant from Harmonia Acústica, also expressed his contentment on the aesthetics as well as on the acoustic absorption of the Clipso stretch ceilings.
