Where's the stadium for the ceremonies?


Recommended Posts

I can't access the link. Is that really the final design, though? If you get the chance to build a venue especially for the ceremonies, why just take a normal stadium? They could have built something more theatre-like, perhaps roofed in order to support bigger props.

The IOC actually objected to it because it thought it would impact ski jumpers practice times (which is ridiculous, considering the facility isn't used everyday). I also thought the venue was to seat

Yeah, I also thought it was a ridiculous excuse to not do the show in the Ski Jumping venue. Lillehammer didn't had much issues doing it there. Even though the venue will be "temporary" i bet using t

The link i posted pretty much has the same content the Naver link had (and which many of us can't access). It seems its the real thing, and the temporary arena will also have LED screens through its exterior.

The design seems very utilitarian and rustic though (kind of reminds me of Rice Eccles Stadium for SLC 2002 ceremonies). And i think elements of this design can still change depending of how the final plan for the shows come out

I'm guessing that "gae" (개) should here be translated not as "dog" but as "unit" (in the sense of the structure standing within the Plaza).

I imagine the ceremonies will be similar in production ability to Torino or SSC. They'll likely make the field itself really nice and fit for the ceremonies and rely a lot less on huge stuff. I think Sochi gave us too high expectations for Pyeongchang, prop wise. Sochi had in general greater means (legitimate or not) to work with, so they could do whatever they wanted. I think these ceremonies will be a turn back to fiscal reality... or they might go all out and try to one up Tokyo or something who knows.

"Huge" is not a problem in itself. A massive chunk of Sochi's budget went on the temporary roof (complete with computer-controlled railway lines) and the temporary hangers at the ends of the stadium. As Brazilians could probably testify from Carnival experience, "huge" can be relatively cheap with a little imagination.

Skimping on the size of entrances would be awkward though.
