Ski world championship kick-off at Schladming

Ski world championship kick-off at Schladming

voestalpine AG, Siglufjördur, Nuuk & Reykjavik

For the ski race promotion in the Icelandic city of Reykjavik, an inflatable, approximately seven metre high voestalpine Sky Gate was designed. The original Sky Gate is an unusual steel construction in the shape of an arch and is also symbolic of the new world champion ski stadium in Schladming. After completely building this up at the event location in Nuuk, Greenland under extremely adverse weather conditions, the event had to be moved to Iceland on short notice because of the weather conditions. In a short amount of time, the construction was disassembled and reassembled at the new event location.
