Avenida Atlântica in Copacabana is about to get a much deserved makeover with the new MIS (or Museum Of Image And Sound), a R$57 million project currently in development on the site once occupied by famous nightclub Help. Seven design firms, four Brazilian and three international, have presented their plans for the museum this week. Brazilian architects Bernardes & Jacobsen, Brasil Arquitetura, Isay Weinfeld, and Tacoa Arquitetos, are competing for the project against the likes of Daniel Libeskind, Shigeru Ban, and Diller Scofidio + Renfro, of the recently opened High Line in New York.
