London Velopark

City: London, U.K.

Year of Games: 2012

Architect: Hopkins Architects

The roof of the velodome was designed to reflect the geometry of cycling while also being lightweight and efficient in the same manner of a bike. The lights and places for natural ventilation in the velodome reduce the need for artificial lighting and air conditioning, and the collection of rainwater from the roof reduced the need of water from the city's municipal system.
