2016 Olympics Welcome Symbol

"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 games visitors and participants as they arrive by air or sea.

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