Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava has unveiled the designs for the Museum of Tomorrow in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The museum is part of the "Marvelous Port" urban design project, which aims to revitalise Rio's historical waterfront.

The two-storey museum features a cantilevered roof and a façade with moving elements extending the full length of the pier.

The building has been designed to minimise its width while emphasising the extension into the bay.
