new work ::: Olympic Velodrome
The first Olympic Park venue to complete construction, on time and to budget - nearly 18 months before the start of the Games. The 6,000 seat Velodrome will host the Olympic and Paralympic track cycling events for the 2012 London Olympics designed by architect Michael Hopkins. The central aspect of the design is the distinct double curving roof constructed of a very lightweight cable net structure and designed to reflect the geometry of the cycling track.
