Rio 2016 Olympic Master Plan
Rio de Janiero, Brazil
Gensler led a top-finishing competition consortium of architects, urban designers and environmental engineers in the planning and design of Rio Olympic Park, a 1.18-million-square-meter area that would serve as home to 15 Olympic and 11 Paralympic events in 2016. The master plan creates an exciting experience for visitors, spectators and athletes, while establishing a framework for sustainable legacy development. New stadiums — with their sustainable technologies proudly on display — are linked together by a magnificent central plaza.
