Olympic Shooting Venue by Magma Architecture
Aside from the sports held at the Olympics, I love seeing the amazing venues that are built in preparation for the Olympics. Berlin based Magma Architecture were responsible for designing the shooting range for the London 2012 Olympic Games, which will host the 10, 25 and 50 meter events. Interestingly enough the “Olympic Shooting Venue,” is actually easily disassembled and moveable. The three tents that make up the venue are composed of a double layer PVC membrane, supported by steel trusses and circular protrusions throughout. In addition to hosting the Olympics shooting events it will also host the Paralympics shooting events in September. Enjoy !!
