Project: Rio Olympic Park 2016


Rio Olympic Park 2016

Location: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Working with SWA Group and Gensler, Sherwood provided infrastructure engineering services for the Rio 2016 Olympic Park Competition. With a goal to establish a cohesive and compelling sequence of extraordinary and energized spaces, the design team developed a unique and evolving plan. To balance the “Games” verse “Legacy” periods, Sherwood developed a scalable infrastructure network that changed dynamically as the use of the space evolved. Sherwood also provided a carbon impact analysis and integrated mitigation systems to eliminate the impact of the development. This team came in 2nd of the 64 submissions.
