Studio Aecom has unveiled the first renderings of the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Park.
The London-based architects won the contract for the site, which will form the centre point of the 2016 Olympic Games.
Located in the Rio neighbourhood of Barra da Tijuca, the park will be on the site of the former grand prix track.
The venue will host the majority of the Olympic and Paralympic sports in a total of 34 venues.
Some 18 of the venues are in operation already.
“We will show off the best of Brazilian architecture in a magnificent setting,” said Bill Hanway of Studio Aecom, which also designed the London Olympic park.
“It will be the first Olympics in South America and Rio is the most beautiful city in the world.
“We have tried to reflect the beauty and spirit of the place in our masterplan.”
Studio Aecom also designed the London Olympic park.
The main Olympic stadium will be the famous Maracanã, which will be redeveloped in time for the FIFA World Cup in 2014.
