Sports facilities for the 2024 Summer Olympics Kiel, Kiel , 2014
With the Schilksee Olympic Centre, Kiel has proven its capabilities for more than 40 years. The grounds of the former naval pilot squadron in Holtenau give Kiel a promising opportunity for new, urban Olympic sailing competitions—modern, urban, and visionary. Due to further planning, Schilksee can once again become a new Olympic centre—providing an infrastructure that not only meets the requirements of 2024, but also shows future potential. The proven backbone of the entire complex becomes the starting point for the further architectural development: From the boulevard on the second floor, which is open to the east and provides barrier-free access as well as shops, restaurants and an integrated swimming pool, spectators have an excellent view of the harbour area in 2024, without interfering with the athletes’ preparations.
