Situated on the peak of Bergisel Mountain above the picturesque alpine city of Innsbruck, Austria, the Bergisel Ski Jump represents the contemporary incarnation of a historic landmark. Designed by Zaha Hadid between 1999 and 2002, the Ski Jump is a study in formal expression: its sweeping lines and minimalist aesthetic create a sense of graceful, high-speed motion, reflecting the dynamic sensation of a ski jump in a monumental structure that stands above the historic center of Innsbruck and the mountain slopes around.
Our friend Djordje Pejkovic from Serbia sent us this interesting project, currently in development. The Ski Jumping Hill is located in the Kopaonik Ski Resort in central Serbia, close to the border with Kosovo. The 120 meter structure is made from cross steel tubes and every detail in the column is visible. The top is horizontally cut to accomodate a viewing platform with a coffee shop in the top deck.
