Modern sports culture knows no boundaries – neither geographically nor in terms of performance or image. It's a lifestyle, where pleasure and profit ambitiously exist side by side. Enormous stadiums are being constructed to host "mega-events" like the Olympic Games in London, to be taken down or moved to a different location afterwards. Anything is possible, but finding the right balance of temporary elements and lasting identity represents a great challenge for planners and architects. Therefore, they look for materials that cater to these developments and allow new opportunities to be exploited in terms of expression and functionality.
