The Venue
The local climate - which helped attract the Winter Olympics in 1972 - meant an all-weather stadium was essential. A field kept outside when not in use is rolled inside on a cushion of air on demand. The seating system moves aside to allow it in and then slides back into place. The process takes about two hours.
