Rio School

LED BY LOPES SANTOS & FERREIRA GOMES + OA Oficina de arquitetos

Working in a design consortium led by Lopes Santos & Ferreira Gomes +OA Oficina de Arquitetos. The Rio 2016 Handball Arena is designed to be disassembled after the games and reconstructed into four schools. AndArchitects, led by Lopes Santos & Ferreira Gomes + OA Oficina de Arquitetos, have thought carefully about what materials and systems of construction will allow this transition with minimal wasted material. It is important that the schools are expressed in the architecture of the arena so that its eventual use is clear even during the games.
