MAC - Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Niterói

It isn't deco! It isn't even old, just over 20 years, but it is one of the most amazing buildings in the world. Oscar Niemeyer's Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Niterói (MAC).

  1. Wow, it is truly beautiful. Like the Jetsons coming to life! I think there are definite Art Deco inspirations in the themes and design though. It has that futuristic, optimistic, marching-towards-the-future kind of feel.

    1. Thanks for your comment Emm. We were thinking Jupiter 2 from Lost in Space but The Jetsons serves just as well.
