The Olympic spirit conveys an ideal of universality relayed by the notion of performance. It means a constant updating of the gains and flawless exemplarity. The project seeks to define, more than a building, a device that incorporates the principle of flexibility and guarantees the permanent updating of the premises. The IOC headquarters is thus designed as an open and flexible system made up of five vast platforms, strictly equivalent from a hierarchical point of view, arranged in tiers perpendicular to the lake to provide visual porosities from the road overlooking the site. A terrace extends outdoor uses. The project clearly highlights the attention paid to the environment, the respect due to residents and users of the lakeshore and the awareness of belonging to a landscape which truly constitutes a national treasure.
