2012 Stadium may be greenest yet

July 1st, 2008 / By: / Case Studies, Exteriors

The London 2012 Olympic stadium, designed by HOK Sport and Peter Cook, could be wrapped in a material made from the cannabis family of plants. Recent images released by the design team show that the temporary wrapping around the stadium will feature giant slits to allow the public to walk through the façade rather than under it as originally designed. Emphasis has always been on creating a lightweight stadium that meets sustainability credentials set by the Olympic Delivery Authority.

Options being considered include materials that use recycled polymer-based fabric, hemp and other materials that can be recycled after the games.
