  • São Paulo has the MASP and the river is the MAM. Two museums with collection, exhibitions and two breathtaking architectural projects. The locals won, because the MAM is even more amazing and even the marvelous Crown aterro do Flamengo.

  • Is one of the museums that liked most in Rio. Has many employees and for what you need, and the works are very interesting. In addition there are areas where you can "participate", very cool! And it's a place with a very nice design.

  • The architecture is pretty cool, depends on some of the exposure that this at the time, any parties that occur it's good to know the programming before taking a jump it
