Olympic Podiums Unveiled


Recommended Posts

I'm so glad Vancouver, unlike past hosts, didn't just plaster their Look onto a regular podium and called it day.

They came up with a really nice, no-brainer concept and executed it well. And those outfits don't look too bad either. Well done.

Love it love it love it love it. It is very big! Reminds me of the Richmond Venue.

So I'm guessing one at the BC Place, One at Whistler and one at Pacific Colosseum (for the Figure Skating?). Plus a mega one at GM PLace for the Hockey?

Am I the only one that doesn't like these? And the flowers? They are ugly. What's with all the green? No body has beaten SLC flowers, a beautiful cluster of yellow.

What I like about it is that its different. I didn't like it at first but now I do. And I do agree about the flowers. They need some color or something. Salt Lake's flowers were really cool...

It is reminiscent of the wood dino puzzles and a topo map.

*Topographic lines are also one of many textures used in the Look of the Games.

I think Vancouver has been very consistent in terms of its design identity, while also making sure prominent design elements differ and stand out enough (logo, torch / cauldron, medal).

Wow. I love the podiums a lot! :) they fit perfectly with the nature brand theme of these games (and i like the concept of symbolizing the athletes that have climbed the mountains to their victory). This beats IMO Torino and Beijing's podium designs and i'm happy they didnt did something boring like just pasting the look of the games on a simple podium like most of the rest.
