Ski-Jump Holmenkollen

The only purpose of the design is to make the process of the jump visible.

The core idea is the structural reduction of the well known silhouette of the Holmenkollenbakken into a needle.

The ski jump profile becomes the designing main element.

From the city of Oslo the jump arrangement appears only as a "needle" in the scenery.

The diagonal structure optimises all development zones and infrastructural facilities.
