London 2012 Velodrome

The brief was to provide a 6,000 seat, permanent venue for indoor track cycling events at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games that would become a lasting legacy for the Lower Lea Valley.

At the heart of the Velodrome is the 250 metre long oval shaped FSC-certified Siberian pine track with seating wrapped around its entirety to achieve continuous spectator support. The track’s shape and banked corners had a major influence on the elegant shape of the building.
