The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has launched an open and international architecture competition for their new headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland. With the volume of the planned building at roughly 70,000m3, with a ground surface area of 18,000m2, the development will include headquarters for 450 staff members, “Olympic campus” housing administrative buildings, and possible accommodation and services. This will allow the IOC to benefit from two Olympic sites in Lausanne: one in Ouchy around The Olympic Museum, to host the general public; and the other in Vidy for the whole administrative staff and to host its institutional partners. The deadline for submissions is May 15. For more information, please visit here.

Would be nice if this was an open competition (at least one with an open first round where the best projects will be chosen for a final round) - unfortunately it's once again a competition with pre-qualification where only big, reknown firms will be chosen...it's a shame for this beautiful,delicate site at the lake...but then again, who wants to build for a bunch of corrupt old men who pretend to care for sports (and have themselves built electric stairways in the garden of the olympic museum because they're too old or fat to walk up a small hill)...
