Video and Model Details
This model represents a guess. Many details can be taken off the Church’s official render. You can get perfect details for the front side, and a decent guess on a detail or two for the side. Most of the side is complete guesswork. Even now as I watch it there are details I want to redo. (Specifically, I think the center side windows should be shorter.) Then there is the back, which will be a complete mystery until they build it. Anyway, I did learnt that this temple is probably the same size as the Star Valley Wyoming Temple, so there is a chance they will be done with construction in a little over a year. I will redo this model then!
I like the audio for this one. The first 2 sounds were recorded in Rio De Janeiro, and the third was recorded about half way down the coast between Rio and Sao Pualo Brazil. The last one is a standard I use for the temple fountains. It’s an absolutely perfect audio recording.

The Rio de Janeiro Brazil is a temple under construction in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. At the time, the announcement brought the total number of temples worldwide to 170. It will be the eighth temple to be constructed in Brazil.
The intent to construct the temple was announced by church president Thomas S. Monson on 6 April 2013, during the church’s semi-annual general conference. The temple was announced concurrently with the Cedar City Utah Temple.
On 4 March 2017, a groundbreaking ceremony to signify beginning of construction took place with Claudio R. M. Costa presiding.
