The venues of the Rio2007 Pan-American Games were grouped into four great distinct regions of the city: Barra, ‘Sugar-Loaf’, Maracanã and Deodoro. This strategy was intended to spread and distribute the direct and indirect benefits of this major international event among all inhabitants of Rio de Janeiro, through the construction of new venues and infrastructure, as well as improvements of the existing ones.

The Deodoro Sports Complex was designed considering that a similar competition venue and program would be applied to a future Olympic Games (2016), including in the same cluster the Shooting, Equestrian, Archery, Hockey and Modern Pentathlon facilities, being also permanent training areas for all major national, regional and international shooting competitions.

The cluster is now a formidable world-class legacy, which has successfully triggered the renewal and further development of this important vector of the city. The project deals with the complex issues of a unique suburban context comprising of a military neighborhood, a densely populated favela, a rough industrial area and a vast wild landscape all mixed together.

Strong horizontal lines predominate in this concrete sports complex located on a roughly rectangular plot in a breathtaking valley surrounded by mountains peaks. The complex has indoor and outdoor facilities such as training halls and grandstands, and features parking and service areas. The night-time periodical pattern of lighting along the peripheral wall and on the right-angled overhead structures produces an otherwordly effect of floating in the dark valley against the backdrop of a slowly setting sun.
