Olympic Committee HQ

Location: Lake Geneva in Lausanne, Switzerland

Design: 3XN

Dynamic, Flexible Building Located on Lake Geneva in Lausanne

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) selected 3XN to design its new headquarters after a multi-stage, international architectural competition that concluded earlier this year. The IOC and 3XN have now released the first renderings of the project, which is located on a 24,000sm site on the banks of Lake Geneva in Lausanne, Switzerland. The new building will bring together 600 employees currently working in disparate offices throughout the city.

“In recognition of the symbolism of the Olympic Games and needs of the organization, we designed the new IOC headquarters around three key elements: movement, flexibility and sustainability,” said Jan Ammundsen, Senior Partner with 3XN. “With its dynamic, undulating façade, the building will appear different from all angles and convey the energy of an athlete in motion. Its interior is designed with as few structural constraints as possible. This open and flexible environment will adapt to multiple work styles now and in the future. Our design is also intended to encourage interaction, communication and knowledge sharing among staff.”

3XN’s entire design is built upon respect for the site and sustainable principles. The building features many energy efficient systems, including lake water pumping, photovoltaics and daylight optimization. The new headquarters is located within a park on the shores of Lake Geneva and adjacent to historic Château de Vidy, which has been the iconic home of the IOC. 3XN’s design is intended to respect both the château’s legacy and park setting and make as soft a transition as possible from park to building.
