Spotlight On: The Architecture of the Olympics
The Olympic Games are known for being the premiere event for all things athleticism and strength. However, there is another side to the Olympics that we absolutely love. The architecture involved in the Olympic Games is an element we love to explore. We have compiled a few of the fantastic architecture projects that are being debuted at this year's Olympic Games. Take a peek: Coca-Cola Beatbox: This recently completed structured is the Coca-Cola Beatbox, which is located in the London Olympic Park. Aside from the unique design, this structure also has the ability to be played like a musical instrument. Simply by touching different areas of the structure, visitors are invited to make a musical collage. Aquatic Centre: This venue is set to be a showpiece of the Olympic Games and we can see why. Featuring a 3,000-ton ceiling made of 37,000 individual hardwood strips that undulate in the shape of a wave, the Aquatic Centre is a sleek and modern structure that can hold 7,500 people, two 50m pools and a 25m diving pool that hold a total of 10 million litres of water. The Shooting Venue: One of the more unique looking structures is the Shooting Venue. This structure is reminiscent of the space age with its PVC membrane and brightly colored openings. In addition, this building is quite contrasting to the other buildings surrounding it, which are Georgian-style. We love seeing all of the unique and original projects being completed for this year's Olympics. If you have found inspiration from these buildings for your next project, Vertical Arts can help.
