The Olympic Aquatics Stadium is a temporary aquatics center in the Barra Olympic Park in Rio de Janeiro. The venue will host the swimming events and water polo finals at the 2016 Summer Olympics, and the swimming events for the 2016 Summer Paralympics.
The center is designed as a temporary structure, a form of nomadic architecture similar to the Future Arena, which hosts handball. After completion of the games, it will be dismantled and its parts will be used in the construction of two new, different facilities.
