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 will put up 2 Stadium Designs and everyone can vote on their favorite one. This is an Opinion poll and not a fact. The Stadium choice should be based on Architectural Design and not Location, Capacity or History. Here is the first duo: Maracana, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. VS National Stadium, Brasilia, Brazil.
