    Rio-based architects BCMF Arquitetos who designed the award winning Deodoro Sports Complex for the 2007 Pan-American Games will be designing the Media and Broadcasting centres and the Olympic Park in Barra. Capable of hosting Shooting, Equestrian, Archery, Hockey and Modern Pentathlon events, the Deodoro will be adapted to become an essential element in the Rio Olympics. (Read AC interview with BCMF’s Bruno Campos). The 2016 Olympics will have an Olympic beach, on the idyllic shores of Guanabara Bay. With plans submitted by LUMO Arquitetos, the beach will be situated beside the main Olympic Village.

    While the Games will be centred around Barra, development will continue throughout the city with several venues in Maracanã , Copacabana and Deodoro and with redevelopment at the Port. The award of the Olympics will help to boost Brazil’s economy encouraging great investment and elevating the first South American country to ever host the Games, into a celebrated international stage and tourist destination – a well deserved legacy. Again Bruno, BCMF, and Brazil…CONGRATS!!!!
