ASTC 2013 Keynote Presentation: Is the Museum of Tomorrow the Future of Science Centers?

The Sunday, October 20th keynote presentation at the ASTC 2013 Annual Conference will focus on the plans for the Museum of the Tomorrow, currently under construction in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Pier Maua as part of the Porto Maravilha waterfront revitalization project. Sustainability will be at the center of both the Museum of Tomorrow’s exhibits and the building itself, as designed by world-renowned architect Santiago Calatrava. This presentation will be followed by a discussion of the implications the museum’s design will have on the future of science centers worldwide.

This is sure to be a “can’t miss” keynote program, presented by Professor Luis Oliveira, Scientific Director of the Museum of Tomorrow, Maria Isabel Garcia, Curator of The Mind Museum, and Sebastian Chan, Director of Digital and Emerging Media at Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum.
