CRP Faculty Leaves Mark in Rio de Janerio's Olympic Games

CRP faculty Vicente del Rio was one of the team members that presented the runner up entry in the international competition for the Olympic Park Master Plan for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Winners were selected in August from 59 entries from all over the world. Besides serving the games, the plan considered a legacy mode that included a sustainable neighborhood to be developed in a 30-year horizon. Professor del Rio’s team included the SWA Group and Gensler (both through their Los Angeles offices), CDC and MPG (from Rio), Herrera Environmental (Seattle), and other consultants.
