London 2012 Olympic Shooting Venue
The shooting galleries for the London 2012 Olympic games are covered in spots that look the suckers of an octopus’ tentacles. Designed by Magma Architecture of London and Berlin, the Olympic Shooting Venue comprises three PVC tents that have been erected at London’s historic Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich. The extruded red, blue and pink circles draw ventilation inside each of the venues and also create tension nodes for the steel structure beneath the white skin. Some natural light permeates this PVC membrane, while entrances are contained inside all the spots that meet the ground. As the structures are only temporary, they will be dismantled immediately after the Olympics and reassembled in Glasgow for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
