The ‘holmenkollen ski jump’ by JDS architects has been completed and is to be the host of the 2011 FIS Nordic World ski championships, running from 23 of February to 06 March, 2011 in Oslo, Norway.
The project, from Belgian-French architect Julien de Smedtis, is a competition win from 2008. Choosing to unify the various amenities together into a holistic design, the elegant serpentine form organizes the project’s programs along its curvilinear diagram.
The constraction is from local engineering firm Norconsult. The ski jump rises 58 meters in the air, cantilevering a further 69 meters.
A panoramic observation deck is help at the head of the structure while the judge’s booth along with the spectators’ seating is arranged at the bottom of the slope.
An inclined elevator assists with the circulation while wind screens clad in aluminum and glass flank both sides of the run.
