The city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, has selected AECOM Technology’s master plan for the 2016 Rio Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The master plan was developed by AECOM in collaboration with Brazil-based DG Architecture along with Wilkinson Eyre Architects, Pujol Barcelona Architects, IMG Sports and Expedition.

The master plan covers three phases including building the Rio Olympic Park area, a transition plan and the final position showcasing the site in legacy mode after 2016.

The first phase of the project focuses on approximately 300 acres of land, located in the district of Barra de Tijuca, southwest of Rio, which will host 15 Olympic sports competitions and 11 Paralympic contests.

It also includes the media centre, which will be constructed at the same location to host approximately 20,000 journalists.

The second phase will include how the site can operate during the transition stage – a five to seven-year period of time while the site is not fully developed.
