Rio port regeneration works – 2016 Olympics

Works are well on their way for the 2016 Olympic games to be held in Rio de Janiero, Brazil.

The below video details the vision and concept of the revitalised Rio de janeiro post area. They are modelling the changes on the successful port regeneration that was carried out prior to the 1992 Barcleona olympic games. The new area will include hotels, olympic infrastructure, inviting recreational beach front areas and also other key infrastructure venues.

Check out the video and the exciting developments ocurring in Rio – the whole city is literally being transformed (notably the pacification of the hillside favelas)
