Authorities in Rio de Janeiro have pulled up their socks to turn the renowned landmarks in Rio into awe-inspiring venues for the summer Olympic Games. The Museum of Tomorrow in the harbor zone of Rio has been revitalized already. But the rest of the Olympic Park has been kept under the veils.
Barbara Iseli, a Swiss architect, who offers guided tours to the finest establishments in the city, has stated that there has been no access for public in the construction site of Olympic Park.
The main Olympic Park is being set up at Barra di Tijuca in the west zone of Rio. The park is on a peninsula. Only a limited number of people have entered the site for specific test events. But for the rest of the visitors, the place is a closed area.
AECOM is the company that has been designing the master plan of the Olympic Park. AECOM will control the design of the park as well as the transport and crowd modeling; with the help of planners, architects and suppliers.
Rio has started to work on the Park before the London Olympics in 2012 and the project has seen severe economic and political fluctuations over time.
Bruno Campos, an architect from BCMF Arquitetos has stated that it is pointless to be excessively iconic as the cityscape in Rio itself is a dominant icon.
It seems that the tourists will have to wait little bit longer to enter the iconic Olympic Park in Rio.
