The National Shooting Centre (Brasil2016.gov.br) was built for the Pan American Games in 2007. This is an award-winning project done by the architecture office BCMF Arquitetos (Brasil2016.gov.br ) that has been carefully renovated by Vigliecca & Associates to meet Olympic standards without changing the identity of the original structure.

Plan

For this, a 2.000 seat temporary grandstand was placed over the existing 600 seats. Once the triple of seats was placed in the same area, the overall visibility angle also had to be reconsidered in order to guarantee visibility to all seats. The result was a softer angled grandstand. The best seats turned out to be the top ones instead of the first ones, just as in permanent stands, and will be designated to press members, also a requirement from the International Shooting Sport Federation. It?s worth mentioning that the first Olympic Medal will be given for this sport modality and surely the entire world will have their...
