BVN, with Rod McGeoch, were engaged to prepare a Masterplan for a future Olympic Bid for the city of Buenos Aires.

The project involved undertaking a detailed appraisal of the city, in particular it’s urban and sporting infrastructure, and developing both a conceptual urban masterplan and schematic designs for a number of proposed venues and facilities.
