London 2012 Basketball Arena by Sinclair Knight Merz

Sinclair Knight Merz is responsible for the temporary arena that will house the basketball and netball competition during the 2012 London Olympics. Wrapped with a patterned skin, the arena is built of a 1,000 tonne steel frame. It can easily be dismantled and reassembled for use on any fitting site. As the fourth venue completed in the Olympic Park, the basketball arena was also one of the fastest time wise. It will host preliminary matches in men’s hoops and the medal rounds of handball.
