Sustainable pavilion for Olympic site

Posted on by in News

BMW Olympic Park PavilionConstruction work is due to start soon on the BMW Group’s Olympic Park Pavilion, a two-storey steel structure designed to reflect the company’s heritage in environmental innovation.

BMW’s pavilion will have a floor space of 800m² and is to be built on an elevated site between the Olympic Stadium and the Aquatics Centre. Designed by architectural firm Serie, the design will use river water to provide a sustainable source of cooling.

Serie co-founder and Principal Architect Christopher Lee said: “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.”

The top floor of the structure will house a number of standalone pavilions which will be used to highlight BMW’s vehicle innovations. The lower floor will have a range of interactive exhibits articulating the company’s vision for sustainable mobility and support for Team GB.
