Athens 2004 Olympic Overlay

Approximately 36 competition venues and numerous non-competition venues were operated to hold the Athens Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2004. All required an Olympic Overlay to transform the base venue into an Olympic standard facility.

The role of PTW Architects focused on the operational design of Games overlay for every competition venue and major non-competition venues. This role has enabled a solid methodology for operational design to be created using interactive functional area consultation.

In conjunction with Jacobs Gibb Ltd., PTW has successfully completed a preliminary block planning design and report for every competition and major non-competition venue. PTW also undertook concept design for every competition and major non-competition venue.
