The Bolshoi Ice Palace is part of the complex of facilities operated by the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF). The complex includes the Bolshoi Ice Palace, Maly Ice Palace and a training rink. All Ice Hockey venues will be located in close proximity to one other, providing maximum comfort for athletes and guests of the Games.

The Bolshoi Ice Palace complex will have a capacity of 12,000 seats and will be covered by a dome. The design of the Bolshoi Ice Palace is based on the image of a frozen drop and will be principally silver once complete.

After the Games, the Bolshoi Ice Palace will serve as an ultra-modern, world-class multi-purpose sports and entertainment center.

Olympic Stadium:

Capacity: 45,000 FIFA mode; 40,000 Olympic mode

The main stadium design, in addition to the venue overlay plan we have prepared for the 2014 Games, delivers a wonderful vision for the Olympic Winter Games, and a lasting sustainable legacy for Sochi. Its sweeping form responds to both its coastal location and mountainous backdrop, and engages with its surroundings by day, and provides an iconic representation of the colour and spectacle of the games when illuminated at night.

The building sits in a prominent location on the Sochi Olympic plaza. The stadium is driven by a desire to utilize the form and transparency of the skin of the building, to expose structural elements and preserve viewing corridors to the mountains and sea. The dynamic relationship between the curvature of the roof edge and the podium frames views both into and outward from the stadium.

The seating bowl accommodates event configurations between 25,000 and 45,000 seats to address Olympic opening, closing, and medal ceremonies, as well as full FIFA stadium compliance to meet its world cup host venue ambitions. Outside of major event mode, the bowl reverts to a compact and atmospheric environment, with a continuous lower bowl flanked by two upper wing terraces housed within the main arches of the stadium.

AILD, fantastic report. Compliment, but I have 3 questions for you.

1. When do the works of the stadium start?

2. What is planned for Sochi about the transport. I have heard about a metro. Possible?

3. Have you the possibility to update with pics or do you live in Moscow, like I read on your location?

1. I don't know if you looked at his post, but as you can see they started construction.

2. I wouldn't know.

3. It's an important thing for Sochi, all kinds of websites will be posting updates I guess.

Both the Skating Center and the Oval should be used as a convention and exhibition centre for Sochi.

Stadium works are on the stage of ground preparations.
