This lecture introduces the socio-political context in which the Rio 2016 Olympics will take place and addresses the limitations of the Olympic legacy for the city of Rio de Janeiro. It claims that the spatial strategy associated with the Olympics accentuates the social and racial divide in the city and are devised as a tool for property valuation. It spots failures in governance arrangements that have seriously limited the impact of the spatial strategy to respond to the city’s main urgencies.
