As part of the popular technical studies lecture series in the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, we welcome Sang Hoon Kim, Senior Associate at Populous and University of Westminster alumnus, to talk about the London Olympic Stadium and its recent transformation for the Rugby World Cup.

This is an open lecture: all are welcome to attend and no registration is necessary.

About Sang Hoon Kim

Sang joined Populous in 2001 to work on a redevelopment of the Ascot Racecourse. As a member of the core team responsible for designing the building, he gave form to the complex tensile fabric roof structure. The project was opened to by Her Majesty the Queen in June 2006 at Royal Ascot.

Following completion of the Ascot Racecourse project, Sang joined the design team of another award-winning project, the London Olympic Stadium. Sang was involved in this project from the initial conceptual design stage through to final completion and its transformation beyond the 2012 Olympic Games.

More recently, Sang helped to develop the strategic masterplan for Lord’s Cricket Ground. Sang has continued his involvement with Lord’s by leading the coordination of the architectural and engineering design for the redevelopment of the Warner Stand. Sang’s extensive knowledge of sport facility design allowed him to contribute to the sport chapter of the latest edition of the Metric Handbook (Planning and Design Data).
