London Olympics 27 July - 12 August
From the moment the Olympics got underway with the mesmerising opening ceremony it was clear that this summer was going to be a special period to celebrate British achievements both on and off the field. AFL Architects have been continuously involved in sporting facilities both in this country and abroad for the last four decades and we thought it would be a good time to review our projects with Olympic connections. Old Trafford was used as a venue for the qualifying and knock out stages for the Olympic Football and the BMX track at the National Cycling Centre in Manchester was built as Team GB BMX training venue. Other Olympic projects of interest are our competition entry for the Rio Olympic Park and a concept design for Wenzhou Olympic Stadium and Sport University in China.
