The National Speed Skating Oval at the Beijing Olympic Park / Populous

With the culmination of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, the remaining and only permanent new venue, the National Speed Skating Oval (NSSO), reflected a new Olympic chapter for China. The stunning ‘Ice Ribbon’ stood alongside the ‘Bird’s Nest’ and ‘Water Cube’ which were built for the 2008 Summer Olympics precinct making Beijing the only city in the world to host both a Summer and Winter Olympic Games.
