New online magazine: The Architecture of Rio 2016

This year we will be paying special attention to the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, resulting in (among other things) the publication of this magazine.



In ‘The Architecture of Rio2016’ we take a look at the urban and architectural design of the next Olympics. We explain the Rio 2016 masterplan, give a complete overview of all the venues and pay attention to Brazilian architecture in general and local architects involved in the design and construction of the venues.
