Architecture: London 2012 Olympics Shooting Venue by Magma Architecture: “..comprised of two partially-closed structure and one fully-enclosed center, the temporary constructions are fully mobile, easily dismantled and reassembled when needed leaving no permanent damage to the footprint..modular steel trusses and members frame simple cubed volumes with 18,000 square meters of pvc double-layer membrane stretched over the buildings. the colorful circular protrusions act as tension nodes to support the membrane spanning an otherwise expansive surface area. they also create entry and exit points for natural ventilation, maintain interior comfort temperatures and create entryways on the ground floor. the semi-translucent nature of the tents reduces the need for interior lighting, making the projects almost fully self sufficient..” Distinctive graphism, thoughtful design..
