RIO 2016 OLYMPIC PARK

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL | RIO 2016 OLYMPIC PARK MASTER PLAN COMPETITION

FLU(x) Architecture + Design, 2011, 10 weeks | Juan Archila, Jorge Bazan, Vanessa Lira, Chris Shern, Kjersten Tucker

The competition was held by the city of Rio de Janeiro in conjunction with the Olympic Committee to gather proposals for the 2016 Olympic Park to be located at Barra da Tijuca. The site is surrounded on one side by the neighborhood and on three sides by Lake Jacarepagua. The brief called for a strategy that addressed both the games and the legacy of the park, as well as, the natural environment of the peninsula.

GAMES | With over 1,115,00 m2, the park will host 10 Olympic and 12 Paralympic sports, a press/broadcasting center for 20,000 journalists, hotel, power and water treatment plants, parking, Olympic training facilities, and various public event spaces.

LEGACY | The legacy plan re-develops the park into a sustainable community for the future, protecting the shore, keeping key venues to be used as athletic training and providing opportunities for new development.
