Brazil - Sugarloaf

Der Zuckerhut in Rio de Janeiro  (1)

The Sugarloaf is next to the Jesus statue probably the most visited tourist destination in the metropolis Rio de Janeiro.
So this causes that the existing funicular and the available floor space on the mountain are reaching the limits of their capacity. Long waiting times for the downhill rides are the result of this. We analyzed the existing structures, behavior of the visitors on the mountain and the available land.

Resulting from this we developed ideas that could extend the duration of stay on the mountain and we also elaborated further development options.
