In 2016, the greatest sporting event in the world will take place for the first time in South America.
In its prime at over 400 years old, Rio de Janeiro is the host city of the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Brazil’s current intellectual and cultural hub is working to deliver the greatest sports festival in the world in 27 days of competitions.
Rio de Janeiro is located in the state of the same name in a southeastern strip of Brazil’s Atlantic coast. The most visited south hemisphere metropolis has frontiers with three other states of the Federation: Espírito Santo, Minas Gerais and São Paulo.
Rio is widely known for its breathtaking landscapes and its people’s unique joie de vivre. A combination of lakes, ocean and lush mountains marks the natural exuberance and typical colours of the Marvellous City.
Solar City Tower Concept - The Solar City Tower is a concept envisaged by Zurich based architecture and design studio RAFAA. This structure was chosen in response to the initial proposal and it has the potential to generate enough energy for Rio de Janeiro as well as the Olympic village and a pumped seawater storage system to generate power at night!
