Architect’s rendering

I’m not one to understand the appeal of shooting, as a sport or otherwise, but the design of the new London 2012 Shooting Venue at the Woolwich Royal Artillery Barracks definitely piqued my interest. Designed by German studio Magma Architecture, the three enclosures are clad in a fun and colorful 18,000 sq m phthalate-free pvc membrane. The bright colored openings contrast nicely against the white in addition to providing tension, ventilation and light.

The exteriors are just about completed, with the installation of seating and back-of-house facilities to come shortly. The venue will be dismantled immediately after the Games.
