The type of structures built for the recent London Olympics were radically different from those of the earlier Sydney Olympics. The facilities for both events were intended to be constructed in an "environmentally friendly manner". The Sydney structures essentially banned the use of fabrics whereas in London it was embraced.
Many of the London structures could be resized, relocated and reused - critical aspects of the conference theme "Touching the Earth Lightly".
The presentation will be given by Farid Sahnoune of Ferrari.
