This competition hosted by the municipality of Rio de janeiro and the Brazilian Institute of Architects (IAB-RJ) is open to all architectural firms and departments around the world, as such It has been a great honour to have the chance to participate in this prestigious and interesting project as a part of the design team from BAU, Shanghai. The brief asks the master plan to fully accommodate the needs of the Olympic Games in 2016, and further more, the post game development of the site as a sustainable city in 30 years time. The scope of the project is huge. As a part of the International design team at BAU, I had the opportunity to work with both senior designers and students across a range of aspects of the project, as well as consulting with civil and sustainability engineers at Arup to develop exciting engineering solutions for the project. All in all it has been a truly challenging and thrilling experience. Our proposal is based on the foundation of developing 'network city' that has mixed zoning and optimised transport system, which are what we believe the key factors of a sustainable future. The site will also feature state-of-the-art infrastructure and energy solutions to achieve carbon neutral and sustainable living for the whole community, as well as a role model to the rest in 30 years time.
