Christopher Lee designs BMW Olympic PavilionFeb 15, 2012
BMW recently revealed plans for the 2012 Olympic Pavilion in London, designed by Serie co-founder and GSD Design Critic in Architecture, Christopher Lee.
The Pavilion is sited between the Olympic Stadium and the Aquatics Centre and will use water from the Waterworks River for an elegant 'water curtain' feature and sustainable cooling system. Further reflecting BMW's commitment to innovation and the environment, the two-story, 800 square meter superstructure will be constructed from recycled steel.
Principal architect Christopher Lee comments: “The design takes the idea of the pavilion in the park–the Victorian bandstand–but instead of one pavilion we envision nine pavilions clustered together to form a family.” Standalone pavilions on the top level will highlight BMW's latest vehicle innovations and the lower level will be programmed with interactive visitor exhibits.
