At the Olympic Games, STADIUMS are real eye-catchers. But what do we know about these giant structures? Emblematic of the Olympic Games, STADIUMS also represent a challenge for the host city. With a long history, they refer to the past while turning to the future. With this new programme, The Olympic Museum is exploring the adventure of these buildings whose impact is measured beyond the 16 days of competition.
Dürig AG has won a competition to design a new Student Housing building for the University of Lausanne in Switzerland. Dubbed Vortex, the residential building will house 1,350 students and is also a candidate for the Athletes Village for the 2020 Winter Youth Olympic Games. For this reason, the design of the building includes a common path that spirals from the ground floor to the rooftop, creating a distinct social atmosphere that caters to students and athletes.
