Populous' 2014 Stadium

Beijing 2008 Olympics gave us the "Bird's Nest." The 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia will give us... "the rotten egg."

"The main stadium design, in addition to the venue overlay plan we have prepared for the 2014 Games, delivers a wonderful vision for the winter Olympics, and a lasting sustainable legacy for Sochi. Its sweeping form responds to both its coastal location and mountainous backdrop, whilst its crystalline skin engages with its surroundings by day, and provides an iconic representation of the colour and spectacle of the games when illuminated at night. We are proud to be involved on such a level with Olympstroy," said John Barrow, Populous senior principal.

Sweeping form? Bowl Sheet.
