The "Orla Conde" (Waterfront promenade) is part of the process of urban transformation of the port and center region of Rio de Janeiro, "PortoMaravilha". The aim of the project is to promote local restructuring through new public spaces, improving the quality of life and the environmental and socioeconomic sustainability of the area: "life, work and leisure in my neighborhood". The demolition of 3 km of a raised viaduct is decisive. Built in the 60's, it ripped the urban pattern and had a negative impact on the region, breaking the proximity with the Guanabara Bay. Its demolition recovers forgotten spaces, generating great possibilities in an area that was seen as degraded and insecure in the last 20 years, and needing to reverse a critical health picture. The designation of Rio as the Olympic City was the trigger for this operation, following the motto used in the urban renewal of Barcelona: "The Olympic games must serve the city but not use it"
