London's Velodrome

Thanks so much to Dezeen for featuring London's new Velodrome for the 2012 Olympics! Designed by Hopkins Architects, the roof's curvature is said to be based on the pitch of the cycling track itself. And with its timber cladding, the building stirs memory of the city's historic shipbuilding industry. Whether it's a boat, a hat, or a Pringle, we love its simple grace.
