World Village of Women Sports (WVOWS) in Malmo, Sweden



Proposed by BIG for an invited competition, the World Village of Women Sports (WVOWS) in Malmo is a 100,000 m2 project to facilitate the research, education and training in one place. No doubt it will create new landmark for the area. To complete the design work, BIG collaborated with AKT (British structural and civil engineering firm), Tyréns (Swedish consultant) and Transsolar (German climate engineers).

“Considering the special requirements of women of all cultures and all ages, special attention has been given, to provide the sports village with a feeling of intimacy and well being often lacking in the more masculine industrial-style sports complexes that are more like factories for physical exercise, than temples for body and mind.” – Bjarke Ingels, Partner-In-Charge, BIG
