A new urbanism was born in Rio de Janeiro city for 2014 FIFA World Cup and 2016 Olympics. Among the principal projects/programs related to this new urbanism, we can mention Porto Olimpico (also called Porto Maravilha). I took this picture of Porto Maravilha before it was concluded.
This is an interview I have done with Belgian architect Matthieu Van Beneden for the Podcast of ALTHERSWANKE magazine (https://altherswanke.com/). He moved to Rio de Janeiro city seven years ago. “In Brazil, architecture is more creative than in Belgium”, he says.
