I think the Gavea Tourist Hotel should be torn down instead of revived. Who would allow a highrise concrete skeleton to crumble and decay for almost five decades? I doubt that the structure will ever be finished and opened, especially for the 2016 Olympics.

Solar City Tower



Designed by RAFAA office based in Zurich, you can generate energy during the day and night, using solar energy and water, respectively. This tower will generate and supply power not only to the Olympic village, but also for the city of Rio.

The Solar City Tower also encompasses other features. Amphitheater, auditorium, cafeteria and shops are accessible on the ground floor, from which you access also to the public elevator that will lead visitors to various observatories, as well as a retractable platform for the practice of bungee jumping.

At the top of the tower you can enjoy all the scenery that surrounds the island which will be implemented and the drop of water generated by the entire system that integrates Solar City Tower, making it a point of reference for the 2016 Olympic Games and city ​​of Rio de Janeiro.

Become a symbol of welcome to those who come to Rio de Janeiro by air or sea, since this will be the host city of 2016 Olympic Games.

Can that Solar City Tower even get constructed for real? I always thought it was just a visionary project.

Yes for now is a visionary project, but it seems to be built, because there are many interested builders. But for now is just a visionary project, the objective of generating energy for the Olympic Village and the city of Rio.

AECOM Unveils Their Masterplan for the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralymic Games



It is said that the 2016 Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro will be the most temporary games in history! As announced in August, London-based AECOM was given another go at designing a masterplan for the international event (the firm was also responsible for London’s 2012 Olympic park master plan). The design emphasises the temporary nature of sporting venues as a way to avoid the negative legacy of former host cities, icluding Athens and Bejing. Judging from the preliminary design of the Rio Olympic park, the games are definitely taking a turn toward sustainability.

Apart from AECOM, the winning design team includes Daniel Gusmão Architecture of Rio, Wilkinson Eyre Architects, Pujol Barcelona Architects, IMG Sports and Expedition. The installations at Rio’s Olympic park are expected to cover an area of 1.18 million square meters in the district of Barra de Tijuca, which will cater for 15 Olympic and 11 Paralympic disciplines. The project includes the construction of six temporary venues and nine permanent ones.[...]
