Museum of Image and Sound to Stand as Rio de Janeiro's Next Beachside Attraction

If you're gonna hang out on the beaches of Rio, you wanna look your best, because everyone there is basically a model. The Museum of Image and Sound, designed by Diller Scofidio+Renfro looks like it just rolled out of bed.

Luckily, this is a building and not a person (in case you didn't notice). As such, the frumpy, wrinkled, bed-headed look is pretty awesome, even if it seems a bit out of place next to slightly less modern apartment buildings. Dezeen says the Museum of Image and Sound is expected to have seven levels more or less, with space for galleries, conference rooms, auditorium and food+drink. Oh yeah, there will also be an outdoor movie theater on the ROOF. Yes.


Construction will be finished sometime in 2011—at which time I will be purchasing a flight direct to Rio. Be sure to check out more photos over at [Dezeen].
