The Rio 2016 Olympic and Para-Olympic games, together with other large events scheduled for upcoming years, such as the 2014 World Cup and the 2011 Military Games, generate enormous opportunities for the development of Rio de Janeiro. The Rio 2016 Olympic and Para-Olympic Games represent a celebration of sports and will be a source of transformation for the city, promoting an environmental, architectural, cultural and sustainable economy legacy, benefiting the urban environment and the quality of life of citizens.
The Rio 2016 Olympic Park is located in one of the four Olympic centers scheduled for development of the 2016 Games, and concentrates the greatest number of sporting equipment and installations. It is a fundamental space for the development of the Olympic Games and for the vitality of Rio de Janeiro. During the Games, this center will concentrate the main sporting events and offer large meeting spaces for the public, sponsors and athletes. Built in Barra da Tijuca, the Olympic Park will be centrally located in relation to the other sporting arenas in Deodoro, Maracanã and Copacabana. It will also be the largest new development built exclusively for the Games.
The International Competition aims to reach a wide range of professionals and seeks creative solutions that unite quality, functionality, and sustainability, which should be joined by use, social, cultural and environmental values. The Competition should favor wide-ranging contributions and establish an integrated approach that ensures that the Project’s requirements are incorporated into the planning, development, and delivery of the Olympic Park installations, from concept to construction of all of its elements. It is expected that the Competition result in a high-quality Olympic Park not only for the sporting events, but also for the region and for the city, as expressions of contemporary culture.
