Sports fans under fabric

Exteriors | January 1, 2008 | By:

The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) has released HOK Sport’s design of London’s 2012 stadium. The bowl-shaped stadium will hold 25,000 permanent and 55,000 temporary seats, allowing for the stadium to be used as a local venue after the Games.

The stadium covers two thirds of the spectators with a cable supported roof and is wrapped by a fabric curtain to ensure additional protection.

Olympics minister Tessa Jowell said, “We will ensure that the Olympic stadium leaves a lasting legacy for London and the UK—a flexible venue with athletics at its heart, but also capable of multi-sport, educational and community use.”
