Create a unique concept for the headquarters of international Olympic movement in Russia.
Consider multifunctionality of the center: it may be used by IOC functionaries as well as by tenants.
Project decision refers to the Coliseum - archetypal location for sport events of the classical era.
A single volume of oval shape permits to transfer borders easily between the IOC area and offices on lease.
Uniform rows of arches create the effect of self-similarity: each arch follows the shape of the whole building, creating a monumental and majestic image.
The concept of the courtyard landscape is based on the image of five Olympic rings.
The building tapers from the bottom to the top allowing to vary planning of office areas which may be both cellular and open.
