Olympiyskiy Sports Complex, built in 1980 for the Olympics, is one of Moscow citizens’ favourite places for leisure activities and remains a significant part of the city environment.
The aim for the main stadium complex is to create a world-class leisure centre for the people of Moscow. This opportunity involves introducing the heroic stadium of Moscow’s Olympic heritage to a new generation of leisure consumers. The integration of shopping areas, supermarkets, entertainment areas for children and young people, public catering facilities, a cinema centre, an observatory and a club concert venue will ensure this consumer aim is met.

Connecting landscape through to the internal space of the stadium became a strong concept for this project as the organic forms of nature influenced the architecture. The curved forms of the aquatic centre and the stadium allowed for a playful touch to the immediate surroundings, offfering ramped pedestrian routes and skate parks in the wider public spaces.
