An elongated prism floats in the forest while a footbridge connects it to the city. Vast bay windows seem to suggest comic strips spaces, while the prism offers a colorful, fantasy like circulation space. This large reception area accommodates the four exhibition volumes, also linked via footbridges.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Barra de Tijuca is a new town in Rio de Janeiro's southern outskirts. It is a long plain that lacks strong architectural events and urban marks. The Cidade da Musica, situated in the center of two crossing highways imagined by Lucio Costa, will be the heart of the new town.
