The world's biggest sporting showdown, the 2016 Summer and Paralympic Games, will commence in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil on August 5. Around 10,000 participants from 204 nations are expected to descend in Brazil, unleashing fierce competition and rivalries.

It is going to be a make or break event for the city of Rio de Janeiro, which has the privilege of being the first South American city ever to host the Olympics games. It is estimated that around half a million fans and supporters are expected to grace the event in Rio, making it hard for the city officials to control the proceedings.

Olympics have always been a backdrop of raw emotions, intense rivalries, passion and sportsmanship between individuals. The games are a total fan fiesta, where supporters from all over the world converge together and celebrate the spirit and motto of the games. A number of supporters miss out on some of the marquee events due to multiple games at a time, limited tickets, sell outs or other reasons that tend to hamper their experience of the games.

The aim of this competition is to design a 'SUSTAINABLE FANBOX', a new typological structure and mascot for the games that would be the prime interaction and gathering zone for the spectators during the Rio Olympics 2016. The competition seeks to recreate the atmosphere of a stadium in a temporary structure where fans who miss out on the live experience could connect with the Olympic games virtually. The FANBOX should communicate a sustainable and profound architectural statement being able to attract and converge visitors around it for intense 24/7 experience of the Rio games.

Propose a holistic and innovative FANBOX structure by appropriation of different interactive functions into a unique facility.
Initiation and adaptation of a responsible and sustainable architecture discourse as an approach to design.
Create a mascot and symbol for the Olympic games, translating its spirit and essence into built form.
The participants are asked to design a SUSTAINABLE FANBOX for the Rio Olympics 2016, on one of the major tourist attractions of Rio de Janeiro, the Copacabana beach.
