Richmond Olympic Oval

UniQuad® custom colors allow oval to complement natural environment

The Project

The Richmond Olympic Oval was created for the 2010 Winter Olympics and Paralympics, but thanks to its flexible design it has been used for a wide variety of sport and community uses since then. The heron, the official symbol of the city of Richmond, and the river next to the building serve as the inspiration for the architectural design, achieving a fluid, seamless look. We collaborated with Cannon Design on the Oval to create a translucent building façade that featured 12 custom shades of blue, which was easy to achieve due to the UniQuadÒ system’s versatile color options. It achieved LEED Silver certification from the USGBC.
