Renowned British architect David Chipperfield joined forces with international consultants Arup on the design.

The 2026 Winter Olympics, officially the XXV Olympic Winter Games and also known as Milano Cortina 2026, is an upcoming international multisport event scheduled to take place from February 6th-22nd, 2026. The event will have the Italian Cities of Milan and Cortina d’Ampezzo as the main Host Cities.

The planned construction of the new arena, which will hold up to 16,000 people, is expected to take around two and a half years. The project design includes a piazza with more than 10,000 square meters of space for Summer festivals and open-air events.
