Homebush, Sydney, NSW
Entry in Open National Competition.


The competition was sponsored by the Sydney 2000 Olympic Bid Committee to develop ideas for the IOC submission. The brief called for an open-air velodrome, with the option of enclosure. The design proposes a network of cables, supported by an upturned rim on one side and masts on the other, to support an optional panelled roof system. A great wall on the western side forms a datum, houses support facilities, defines entry and terminates the Olympic Park axis.
