The architect Santiago Calatrava, said:



“The city of Rio de Janeiro is setting an example to the world of how to recover quality urban spaces through drastic intervention and the creation of cultural facilities such as the Museum of Tomorrow and the new Museum of Art.

The plaza creates a more cohesive urban space and reflects the neighbourhood’s greater transformation.”
