2012 Olympic stadium to feature fabric curtain

October 1st, 2008 / By: / Industry News

The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) has released HOK Sport’s design of London’s 2012 stadium.

The bowl-shaped stadium will hold 25,000 permanent and 55,000 temporary seats, allowing the facility to be used as a local venue after the Games. The stadium covers two-thirds of the spectators with a cable-supported roof, and is wrapped by a fabric curtain to ensure additional protection.

Olympics minister Tessa Jowell said, “We will ensure that the Olympic stadium leaves a lasting legacy for London and the U.K.—a flexible venue with athletics at its heart, but also capable of multisport, educational and community use.” For more information, visit
