Rio 2016 is not an event with protests against the interim president Michel Temer, only. Rio 2016 is an event with art and sport celebration too OLYMPIC BOULEVARD - Rio's Port Area Rio’s Olympic Boulevard unveils massive mural celebrating indigenous cultures One of the most impressive works in our recent spotlight on Rio de Janeiro’s vibrant street art scene is a brand new masterpiece by Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra, who just transformed a whopping 190-meter-long (that’s over 600 feet) wall in Rio’s renovated port district into a celebration of the world’s indigenous cultures. Measuring almost 3,000-square-meters in size, "Ethnicities," (or Etnias, in Portuguese) hopes to secure a Guinness World Record for the largest mural from a single artist. The mural features five colorfully abstracted faces, each representing an indigenous population hailing from the five world continents depicted in the Olympic rings. http://www.curbed.com/2016/8/8/12402118/rio-olympics-mural-kobra BEACH VOLLEYBALL - Copacabana Beach WOMEN'S MARATHON - Around the Museum of Tomorrow WOMEN'S MARATHON - And the SugarLoaf with the cablecar TENIS ARENA - Olympic Park
I have created a magazine about the spatial and architectural design of the upcoming Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. This trilingual magazine (English / Portuguese / Dutch) is available for free as limited printed edition and online via issuu. In 'The Architecture of Rio2016’ we take a look to the Games from the perspective of the designer. I explain the Rio 2016 Masterplan, give a complete overview of all the venues and pay attention to Brazilian architecture in general and local architects involved in the design and construction of the venues.

I came across this article on the legacy--physical, cultural, economic--of the Moscow games. I thought I'd share it with you all. Here's the link to the article: http://www.wired.com/2015/09/anastasia-tsayder-summer-olympics/
