Set to take place in London, the structures and athletic arenas have been in the work for quite some time, and with the fully completed Velodrome, which opened in February of 2011, the architectural trends for the games have shown a constant evolving design trend throughout the games’ history.

The Velodrome designed by Expedition Engineering is the games’ most eco-friendly and sustainable building for the 2012 Olympics. The green design of the structure with its steel reduction use in design along with energy and water reduction is a modern marvel that will withstand the test of time.

Located in the glorious structure which houses 6,000 seats and is geared towards the cycling events of the games, lies a grandiose piece of modern design that boasts innovation in sustainability and modern interior design.

Its wooden façade is a true marking of eco-friendly design by using natural elements on the outside as well as the inside. The Velodrome marks yet another step into the value of sustainability and it prominence in the future of architecture. We’re excited to see how this landmark will come to use for the Olympic games mid-year in 2012 and how the Velodrome will serve as a beacon of green building for years to come.

    I’m not so enthusiastic as you – The gnovrement can’t afford it to start with. We’ll all have our taxes increased to pay for the thing. Londoners will be hit badlly with a larger congestion charge. Plus I’m sure the residents of London (plenty of whom aren’t even British) are really looking forwards to the streets being jam-packed full of tourists for a month!Plus, it’s all supposed to be for UK sport but mainly only the South East and London will benefit.Very negative, but that’s what I think! I wish Paris had got it!

    The velodrome is impressive considering it mimics the functionality of a bicycle. The attention to detail is impeccable and a investment on the UK’s part. They really upped the anti this year.
