Sven Schmedes is an architect specialized on Project Management. During his career he worked on several international stadium projects in Germany, Dubai, South Africa and India. For his research on sustainable integration of stadiums he received a grant from the International Olympic Committee.
The research analyses the post-effects of mega-events such as the Olympic Games on the existing urban context and on the regional development. The results of this research will establish outlines for strategies towards a more sustainable integration of major sport facilities.
The impact of major sport facilities like stadiums, on the existing urban context and on regional development is very great. In particular, where several new sport facilities are built for single mega-events like the Olympic Games, the impact is even higher.
