Populous completes Sochi Olympic stadium

  • Comment

London-based Populous has completed the Fisht Olympic Stadium for this year’s Winter Games in Sochi, Russia

The iconic 40,000-capacity building is the centrepiece of the game’s 200 hectare Olympic Park which was also masterplanned by the AJ100 practice.

Inspired by traditional ‘Faberge eggs’ – the curved structure will host the opening and closing ceremonies for the most expensive games in Olympic history which start on Friday 7 February.

The stadium will be converted to host FIFA World Cup matches in 2018 before becoming a 25,000-capacity home for a local football team.
