In Pictures: Olympic Shooting Range by Magma Architecture

[FIRST LOOK + DRAWINGS] Magma’s temporary venue in Woolwich has been the venue for the 2012 Olympic shooting events

Located on the grounds of the Royal Artillery Barracks the temporary building, which is the venue for the pistol and rifle shooting events, saw Peter Wilson win a Gold medal in the double trap for Team GB.

The three temporary buildings house ranges for the 25 and 10/50m qualifying rounds and a medal venue, all enclosed in a white double curved membrane façade studded with colored openings that animate the façade and operate as tensioning nodes.

After the Games the building will be dismantled and there are plans to reuse the venue for at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. All three of the buildings are fully mobile, every joint has been designed so it can be reassembled and no composite materials or adhesives were used.
