Washington 2024

Washington, D.C.

Gensler partnered with the official Washington 2024 team to craft a proposal to be the United States bid city for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The master plan created for hosting the games in the Capital Region centered on the theme of “unity.” Concentrating event venues in areas that would take advantage of the city’s unique character and icons, the plan also focused on stimulating development for the Anacostia waterfront. Gensler prepared diagrams for the sports venues’ complex logistics and helped identify locations for the International Broadcast Center/Main Press Center and the Olympic Village. Additionally, Gensler developed legacy plans to envision what the Olympic facilities would be, and how they would be used, once the games close.
