Moving towards the new Olympic House
As the IOC this year celebrates 100 years since it moved to Lausanne, the organisation is reaffirming its attachment to the Olympic Capital for the next 100 years, as it moves ahead with its headquarters consolidation project.
The IOC has now submitted the request for permission to extend its headquarters in the area adjacent to the Château de Vidy, and a public inquiry will be held from 30 June to 30 July 2015.
Named “Olympic House” and designed by Danish architects 3XN, the new building will offer a place of welcome for the IOC members, and will be a meeting place for the whole Olympic Movement. It will also allow for the entire administration to be grouped together in a single location, which will lead to significant long-term cost savings, greater efficiency and better use of energy.
This high-quality architectural project, designed in close consultation with the city and cantonal authorities, will offer the region an emblematic building. The aim of the design is for the building to blend in with the historic setting and its environment. With this project, the IOC also wants to demonstrate its ambition in the area of sustainability and the environment.
