2018 Pyeongchang Media Residence Hotel
Most buildings created for the Winter Olympic Games have ultimately become “white elephants”. To avoid this problem, the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics media residence was designed using relocatable building (RB) units as the media residence during the Games. Afterwards, the buildings were dismantled and the site was restored to its original condition. Best of all, the RB units will be relocated and reused. To achieve this, the building design followed a fourfold concept: relocatable; reusable; recyclable (steel-based design); and reduced (100% factory made). This is the world's first 100% relocatable building and marks a paradigm shift in event architecture.
