Richmond Olympic Oval

The local news announced the completion of Richmond Olympic Oval, one of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic venues. We decided to head over and check it out. I was pleasantly surprised and thought the building is nicely done, a simple modern design.
I love the blue colors and the curved lines of the roof.
The Oval received an award for innovative architectural design. The roof ceiling is made of pine beetle killed wood. I'm glad someone has decided to use this otherwise disposable resource and create something beautiful.
Some pictures of simple shapes and colors taken while walking around the building.
