Rio de Janeiro’s Welcome Sign For the 2016 Olympics Is Unbelievable!

image001“Solar City Tower,” built atop the island of Cotonduba, will be the welcome symbol to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.  It will be seen by the game visitors and partici- pants as they arrive by air or water.

image002The tower captures solar energy. It will supply energy for all of the Olympic city, as well as also for part of Rio.  It pumps up water from the ocean to create what appears like a water fall and this fall stimulates turbines that produce energy during the night.  (It will also hold the Olympic flame.)

image003The Tower possesses an amphitheater, an auditorium, a cafeteria and boutiques. Elevators lead to various observatories.  It also has a retractable platform for the practice of bungee
jumping.  At the summit is an observation point to appreciate the scenery of the land and ocean, as well as the waterfall.

Solar City Tower will be the point of reference for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro .
