Solar Tower for the 2016 Olympic Games - Rio de Janeiro

Image

The challenge was to design a vertical structure on the island of
Cotonduba that in addition to serving as an observation tower would
become a symbol of welcome to newcomers in Rio either by sea or by
air once it has been host city of 2016 Olympic Games.

Designed by RAFA firm headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, it is called
"Solar City Tower, this structure was chosen in response to the initial
proposal and it has the potential to generate enough energy not only for
the Olympic city, but also for part of the city of Rio.

Its design makes it stores solar energy during the day thanks to signs at
ground level, while the surplus energy produced is piped to pump sea
water within tower giving the effect of a waterfall outside. This water is
reused simultaneously by turbines which are designed to produce energy
during the night

These characteristics give it the epithet tower generator which is intended
as a continuation of some of the resolutions taken during the Earth
Summit United Nations in 1992 that took place in Rio and also promotes
the use of natural resources in energy among these people.

The tower also has an amphitheater, an auditorium, cafeteria and shops
accessible on the ground floor where you can take an elevator that leads
to various observatories and a retractable platform for the practice of
bungee.

At the top of the tower, it will be possible to appreciate the scenery
around the island where she will be erected and its waterfall will
become a benchmark for 2016 and the city of Rio de Janeiro.
