London 2012 Olympic Games Went Green with Recyclable Basketball Stadium

Celebration of the Olympics so far has been a privilege granted only to a few rich countries who could afford to erect massive sports arenas required for the event. Since the Olympics draw large numbers of international visitors, these arenas of construction is a must.

However, to level the playing field proverbial for countries with a slightly lower budget, designers Wilkinson Eyre and Sinclair Knight Mertz have created a field of basketball which is not only economic to the organizers but also much more green than the majority of permanent structures. The project of the London 2012 Summer Olympics basketball stadium was created in collaboration with consultants of KSS sports and as its name suggests, would be used to organize basketball this summer Olympic Games yeara s.

Made with 1,000 tons of steel, design is very cheap and 100% Green, but certainly presents a great case for the incorporation of more sustainable designs for events of the same structure and Crown, the assistance as the Olympic Games. Clad in white, basketball stadium is composed of recyclable materials that can be reused.

For now, the London 2012 Olympics basketball stadium is one of a kind project to the members of the Olympics Organizing Committee, as well as host nations concerned agree that such sports arenas potentially could bring games to Nations with less purchasing power and give a boost to their economies at the same time make the Olympic games more green.
