Man operating a digger at Praça XV, working on the final preps for the Olympics that were going to start five days later.
Five days to the start of the Olympics and Praça XV (Square XV) was the stage for major urban interventions, some still ongoing. A few details did not get ready for the start Olympics, but still, the new Boulevard Olímpico connecting Praça XV to Praça Mauá will look great for the games.
An area that used to be underneath a major road (called Perimetral) – demolished on the end of 2014 – seems to have been witnessing construction related work since then. Now it has a new life.
