The Olympics are quickly approaching – the opening ceremony is this Friday! I recently discovered what the winners podiums are going to look like as well as the trays they will use to carry the medals on (click here to see the medals).
“The podiums ‘echo the undulating peaks and ridges of the Coast Mountain Range.’ Each podium (there are 23 in all) is assembled from more than 200 pieces of precision-cut wood. The lumber was harvested from the forests of British Columbia, famous for its red cedars and douglas firs, and donated by businesses, organizations and individuals across the region. Finally, each podium is topped with a thick acrylic surface reminiscent of snow.”
