The Richmond Olympic Oval – Host of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games

In less than 1 month Vancouver will be releasing the 2010 Winter Olympic. The event is almost ready and the venues are counting the days to begin breathe sports everywhere. And one of the biggest hotspots will be the Richmond Olympic Oval, a project by Cannon Design and definitely worth of attention by its beauty and design.

The six-acre building sits on the fraser river near vancouver and demonstrates the sustainability standards for the games. The building received a silver LEED certification, thanks in part to its clever use of locally sourced wood that was affected by the mountain pine beetle infestation. The design features three levels and seating for up to 8,000 spectators. The roof is the venue’s most striking feature, with a wave formation that is one of the world’s largest clearspan wooden structures. the building also collects rainwater for re-use throughout. the venue was completed in 2008 and will continue to bee used as a multi-purpose sport facility once the vancouver games are completed.

Located minutes from Vancouver International Airport, the Oval is a breathtaking facility along the banks of the Fraser River and a hallmark of public accessibility, environmental sustainability and worldclass sportsmanship.

Honored with several awards including the Institution of Structural Engineers 2009 Award for Sports or Leisure Structures, the building has spacious, modern interiors featuring wood floors, natural light and a broad public art program incorporated into the Oval itself and its immediate surroundings.

After the Games, this renowned facility will offer an inspiring environment for all skill levels—from fitness rookies to sports superstars—to progress towards their own personal podiums.

You can check these amazing photos below, and if you want to see the Oval in action by yourself there’s still time, the Olympic Games will begin in February 12! For more informations visit: vancouver2010.com.
