Sydney International Aquatic Centre

PTW Architects in association with Cox Richardson

A part of Sydney’s preparation of its Olympic Bid was to undertake the design and construction of several facilities that would demonstrate its ability and resolve to host the 2000 Olympic Games. The Sydney International Aquatic Centre hosted all the finals for swimming, diving, synchronised swimming and water polo and the preliminaries for the above with the exception of water polo. The controlled environment provided by all 4 pools being under the one roof allows for year round use for competition, training and leisure activities. The inclusion of 1000m² of leisure pool, an 8 lane training pool, gymnasium, cafe and creche support the broad range of users of this key Olympic venue.
