Monday 01st July 2019 From user-needs to construction: how Olympic House became a reality

From Day 1, the new HQ for the International Olympic Committee, Olympic House in Lausanne, has been positioned not only as a construction project but also as a transformation project by the IOC.
As a result, a user centric approach was implemented to define the needs which were the basis for the international architecture competition launched by the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
Out of the 12 architecture companies selected to present a project, Danish architecture firm 3XN was the one selected by the IOC to design and build Olympic House, in a consortium with local swiss architect Itten+Brechbühl.
After a 7-year long process, Olympic House was inaugurated last month on 23 June 2019.
We’re delighted that Nicolas Rogemond, programme manager at the IOC and Søren Nersting, senior associate at Danish architects 3XN will be at our Workplace Trends Copenhagen conference on 19 September to present how they have collaborated to make sure the user needs were translated in the architecture of Olympic House.
