2016 Olympic Games Legacy in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Like London 2012, the infrastructure legacy is a large part of the 2016 Olympics project. Essentially it breaks into two parts. First, the main venues will form a permanent Olympic training centre after the Games.

The second part is mostly about housing and commercial space. AECOM’s competition entry also proposed a school to be built near a bordering favela and the redevelopment of the international press building as a college.

‘A lot of money in a project like this goes into putting in the utilities, and we wanted at least 70 per cent of the infrastructure to be used afterwards,’ explains Goymour.
