Building Wraps

October 2, 2009

When I was in Salt Lake City, one of the favourite images I saw was of the downtown core all ‘decked out’ in Olympic livery. This isn’t the exact image I saw (will probably never find it), but it gives you the idea:

I love this image so much because it highlights how much of an ‘Olympic Village’ gets created in the downtown. I can’t wait to be right in the middle of it all come Vancouver. Our games will probably be even better in this regard than Salt Lake’s were, just because our venues are much more centralized.

Anyways, reason I bring this up, is that at, there were some images posted of two of the first building wraps for the games:

That’s one huge Canadian Flag on the Georgia Hotel. The second image is of ‘The Bay’ in downtown Vancouver…which is the Olympic superstore. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the buildings…and Vancouver as a whole…will look like in a couple months!
