rio de janeiro's olympic solar tower

(coisa linda, meu Brasil varanil. Vamo ve se isso passa, neh?)

I'm amazed at this proposal for a solar tower in Rio de Janeiro, where the Olympic Games 2016 will take place. This vertical structure will be both an observation Tower and a welcome sign for the visitors arriving by air and by sea. The Solo City Tower holds a cafe, an amphitheater, auditorium and shops. Lifts will take the visitors to the top, where the view will be fantastic, and bungee jumping will have a special platform. The Tower will also hold the Olympic torch and according to the proposal will hold enough solar panels to produce energy for the Olympic city. I hope it gets approved.
