UBC students design pavilion for 2010 Olympics

Sarah Chung at the THEUBYSSEY.CA reports

The 24-hour design session, or 24-hour charette, consisted of interdisciplinary architecture student teams designing a rain-proof, bright, and lively pavilion to be erected in Downtown Vancouver for the 2010 Olympics. The event was held at the Lasserre Building and ended at 9am Monday morning.

“[The Olympics] are starting to get so close…this is a chance to have an effect and be involved in the Olympics, and the fact that [the pavilion] will actually be built, that’s really exciting,” said Jamie Johnson, a second-year Landscape Architecture student.

Winners will be announced on November 16 by a panel of multi-disciplinary judges.
