rio olympic game 2016


Rio de Janeiro / Brazil

This is the first time in history that the Olympic game is held in South America. The city of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil was announced as the host for the Summer Olympics in 2016 by the International Olympic Committee (IOC).


The Olympic Park site is placed on a 120-hectare plot of land in the district of Barra de Tijuca in Rio de Janeiro.


The key vision of the project is to create a sustainable and long-lasting legacy that serves the local community. The design proposal from AECOM was inspired by the dramatic natural beauty of the landscape and architecture of Brazil culture.


The project includes the construction of temporary and permanent facility such as the Maria Lenk Aquatic Park, the Rio Arena, the cycle track, the tennis courts, science and sports laboratory, Olympic hall, media centre, commercial and residential development.


Also, It includes a free movement area that can accommodate approximately 150 000 spectators within the Olympic Park during the game.


Furthermore, the masterplan includes the delivery of the transport system, utilities and social infrastructure, a new central park with leisure and entertainment area for 12 000 people.
