Youth Arena

With its sleek modernist lines, the Youth Arena is an understated addition to Rio’s landscape. The key challenge in designing the facility was that is needed to accommodate two very different sports — women’s basketball and fencing for the modern pentathlon. The building is quipped with natural ventilation, large shading areas on the facade, and other features that reduce maintenance costs.
