Update: The New Holmenkollen SkiJump by JDS Architects

If you are a fan of sky, particularly Nordic Ski, you will be happy to learn that the New Holmenkollen SkiJump designed by JDS Architects' will host the 2011 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships 23 February - 06 March 2011.
After this sport break, if you just get interest in JDS Architects' new project for itself — this is my case —, the New Holmenkollen SkiJump finally is completed.
Whatever the purpose of your interest for this SkiJump, it is a fascinating, sculpture-type ski jump that can be used both for sports — first use — second as a landmark for Oslo Municipality.
As I have already presented this project, I will merely update the previous post.

This sculpture-shaped SkiJump is clad in aluminium and glass and rised 58 meters in the air. It cantilevers an impressive 69 meters and on the first day of jumping tests. The record of the longest jump made at Holmenkollen was broken.

Atop the ski jump is a platform where visitors can take in some of the most breathtaking views of Oslo, the fjord and the region beyond. It's a new form of public space, using an unlikely architectural form as its host, affording the same spectacular vantage point for everyone who comes to Holmenkollen.
