For the first time at the Olympic Games, Globo Group was positioned in the heart of the Olympic Park. The building should convey the excellence of its content, the brand of the Globo Group and its connection to the world, and to live up to the architecture of the sports arenas that surrounded the construction.
In addition to being aesthetically interesting, the building should be functional, featuring two panoramic studios for simultaneous broadcasts and an interactive lounge that would be the showcase of the media platforms of Globo Group.
After seven months of construction, the building was inaugurated on the occasion of the start of the games and the success was so great that in the midst of so many Olympic arenas, our studio became a meeting point, a point of selfies, a stage of many emotions and reference.
After this innovative and challenging project, with such a positive return, the installation of a similar structure in another Olympics or big event becomes a trend.
