When Vancouver won the opportunity to host the 2010 Winter Games, the city of Richmond decided to build a venue that would be of lasting benefit to the community: the Richmond Olympic Oval. What was once the home of long-track speed skating has since been transformed into a 20,000-square-foot fitness complex, housing a state-of-the-art gym, two ice rinks, volleyball courts, basketball courts, indoor soccer fields, running tracks, climbing walls, batting cages, an indoor rowing pool, and more. Staff members organize activities using each aspect of the venue, ranging from sport leagues to fun fitness challenges. Members gain access to the facility and its programs as whole, allowing them to work out on their own or experience the gym’s amenities as part of a group fitness class.
Fitting such a variety things under one roof—and doing so elegantly—is no small feat. But here, a beautiful arching roof literally covers the entire facility. “The Richmond Olympic Oval has won over 50 awards for building design and innovation, including the Institution of Structural Engineers’ 2009 Structural Award for Sports or Leisure [Structures],” according to the facility’s program manager. The competition for that particular accolade was pretty fierce, since it also included Beijing’s Bird’s Nest stadium and Water Cube aquatics centre, as well as a 50-foot-tall statue of Joseph Pilates whose core keeps getting more defined.
