In 2018, Colorado Springs, Colo. will be home to two Olympic-affiliated facilities: The existing U.S. Olympic Training Center, and the upcoming U.S. Olympic Museum, the first (and only) of its kind in the country.
On Thursday, New York–based Diller Scofidio + Renfro unveiled renderings for the 60,000-square-foot facility. The design, spiraling upwards from a central atrium, draws inspiration from the movement of athletes. In addition to 20,000 square feet of exhibit space, the building will house a state-of-the-art theater, a broadcast studio, a gift shop, and a café. Richard Celeste, the museum's board president, has high hopes it will become one of the nation's must-see attractions.
