London Olympic Stadium

London Olympic Stadium


Scheme name: London Olympic Stadium

Practice: POPULOUS

Client: The Olympic Delivery Authority

Photographer: London 2012

Central to the vision for 2012 are facilities that provide not only world-class Olympic venues, but also form a legacy of sustainable facilities for future use. Thus, the stadium can be reduced from 80,000 seats in Games mode to just 22,000 in its legacy role.

The bowl of the stadium provides for clear sightlines and an intimate relationship with the events. With its expressive and identifiable crown of rooftop floodlights it has already become a landmark on the skyline of the city.
