Artist's Description

BERGISEL SKI JUMP – 2002
Situated on the Bergisel Mountain overlooking downtown Innsbruck, the ski jump will be a major landmark. It is part of a larger refurbishment project for the Olympic Arena and has replaced the old ski jump, which no longer met with international standards.
The building is a hybrid of highly specialized sports facilities and public spaces, including a café and a viewing terrace. These different programs are combined into a single new shape which extends the topography of the slope into the sky.
At a length of about 90 meters and a height of almost 50 meters the building is a combination of a tower and a bridge. Structurally it is divided into the vertical concrete tower and a spatial green structure, which integrates the ramp and the café.
Two elevators bring visitors to the café 40 meters over the peak of the Bergisel Mountain. From here they can enjoy the surrounding alpine landscape as well as watch the athletes below fly above the Innsbruck skyline.
Zaha Hadid Architects won the international competition for the ski jump in 1999. The new structure opened in 2002.
Total floor area: 1470 square meter
Built area: 355 square meter
