Celebrating Great Design and Sporting Excellence

Built in the district of Barra de Tijuca, southwest of the Brasilian megalopolis, the Rio Olympic Park is almost finished with less than 100 days to go until the games begin. The 2016 Olympic Park will boast 34 sports venues in August, which will host 15 Olympic and 11 Paralympic sports.

UK-based AECOM – who also designed the London 2012 Park – won an international architectural competition back in 2011 to design the Rio Games.

AECOM said “The masterplan design naturally makes a virtue of this dramatic setting, to create a global stage for the Games. But in the longer term our work has played a role in contributing to the long term evolution of the city.”
