WSDG participated doing the systems and acoustics design of 7 arenas of the Rio Park Olympic villa, and of the renovation of the Maracanã Stadium, where the Opening Ceremony was hosted on August 5th.

Barra Olympic Park was developed as Rio’s primary 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games competition center.  It will also serve as the city’s largest sporting legacy when the competitions end. With an area of 1.18 million square meters, Olympic Park includes nine sports venues. The Olympic Arena and Maria Lenk Aquatic Centre were built for the Rio 2007 Pan American Games. The seven new stadiums/sports venues are: The Olympic Tennis Centre, Aquatics Stadium and Rio Olympic Velodrome; plus: Olympic Hall 1 (basketball, wheelchair basketball and wheelchair rugby), Olympic Hall 2 (Olympic and Paralympic judo, plus wrestling and boccia), Olympic Hall 3  (taekwondo, fencing, sitting volleyball) and, Olympic Hall 4 (handball and goalball).
