Museo do Amanha
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Category: Tourist Attraction
The”Tomorrow Museum” uses immersive audiovisual environments, interactive installations, and games to let visitors examine the past and imagine possible futures – in Portuguese, English and Spanish – in 15,000 m2 of exhibition space on two floors. The museum also has an innovation laboratory, an observatory that maps our planet, and a bar, restaurant and museum shop. The 30,000 m2 outdoor garden area has a reflecting pool, and biking and recreation areas. The museum meets LEED certification guidelines (Green Building Council Brazil).
Located on the Mauá Pier in the Porto Maravilha seaport, the Museu do Amanhã needed an absolutely waterproof solution for the ground floor structures and the outdoor reflecting pool in front of the museum building. The below-ground structures, the foundation slab of the museum, and the outdoor reflecting pool were treated with PENETRON ADMIX and the resulting construction joints (over 800 m / 2,624 feet) were permanently sealed with PENEBAR SW-55 waterstop.
