The design of Russia’s Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics has been reveled even though its rendering seems premature. As always, the architect designed the venue with flexibility in mind for efficiency. When it’s used for Olympic, it will have a capacity of about 12,000 spectators but after Olympic it will have 771 more seats, thank to the retractable stands that can be removed.
The facility has been designed in order to host Sports and leisure events such as ice skating, baseball, gymnastics, tennis, spectacles, concerts, exhibitions etc. When the retractable stands are closed, the field of play will be 99×67 meters.
