We have reported on Danish firm, JDS Architects, before. And here their memorable work continues. This glorious design for the Holmenkollen Ski Jump in Oslo is the result of an international competition and is to be completed in time for the 2011 World Championships. The ski jump is an existing landmark on the hillside northwest of Oslo’s city centre. However, the renovation will ensure the jump glows, kinks and projects a shaft of light into the sky. The top has been clipped to form a flat platform, with a heated floor to melt any snow, to offer 360 degrees views for the public.
