Construction is underway in Oslo, Norway, on the new Holmenkollen ski jump designed by JDS Architects.

The Danish practice have sent us these new renderings of the project.

Building will be completed in time for the Holmenkolldagen annual international ski jumping competition in March 2011.

Holmenkollen Ski Jump

    congrats¡¡

  • DCV

    Julien, you rock!

    It’s a magnificent prehistoric beast!

    The second rendering calls to mind a scene in Bunuel’s “Discreet Charm of the Bourgeousie”–except here instead of the walkway being fraught with existential middle class angst, this has a “burning bush” sense of awe.

    It’s the feeling of being humbled by majesty (of nature)–without the prerequisite fascism lurking behind…

  • DJ

    nice construction photos……lol

  • notshadylady

    oooh i’m excited to see this one when it’s finished!

  • jhonny 5

    This is an amzing project and will be one of the greatest icons of the architecture, its going to be a really good year next year to see this,Skijump by JDS, epfl by sanaa, Hamburg theatre by Herzog de Meuron and CCTV by oma all finally finished!

  • kumakuma

    i totally agree about exciting projects, jhonny5, especially sanaa’s epfl.

  • S.m.a.r.t.

    THIS PROJECT LOOKS LIKE GARMISCH SKI JUMP WHICH IS ALREADY BUILT

  • jhonny 5

    Actually Garmisch sucks though, this one is far more interesting, diagramatic and has much more interesting forms and programme, yes its a canteliver but its just so fucking much better!

  • S.m.a.r.t.

    jhonny and some dudes here: you are from JDS …marketing commercial adverising should not be part of comments here. Leave this to others; not involved in JDS office

  • fman

    the only ski jump worth mentionting from now on!!!….Garmisch? Zaha? who??
    great work JDS.

  • B.

  • W

    sexy

  • cheezy man

    jesus fucking christ!!!!
    it’s like the line of Merlin Monroe body!!!!!
    absolutely sexy!!

  • Osloark

    Looking forward to seeing this coming up out of the ground. I can see the area from my kitchen window and the scene is not quite the same without the sillouette of the ski jump. this one will be fantastic to see and I do hope the lighting will be as dramatic as in the original renderings.

  • Parker

    Magnificent beast.

  • Joe

    This will be a nice change. The current ski jump is not much to look at, but sitting up on the hill overlooking the city it is a great opportunity for some architecture.

  • Brian

    DUDE!

    I love it! BEAUTIFUL STRUCTURE AND LINES!
    Way better than ZAHA! (But I sill love her stuff!)

  • jackbox

    this is a funny example of how an average office posts an average design and then spends a whole day to hype themselves. u guys should use ur time to make this unique. its not that great dudes..

  • Tracy Jack

    average idea for a beautiful site. bjarke should be able to provide a more exciting scheme than this…

    btw i strongly recommend this issue of volume magazine for every jds lover/hater. the interview titled mismanagement. i think jeffery inaba is being diplomatically sarcastic to him. julien de smedt also admits his chaotic working agenda and the intern-abusing nature of his office (becareful before you applied JDS for a job).

    btw i think it’s obvious that jhonny 5 is the associate of jds…

  • Volpina

    Have a look at nicely organised Architectural practises for example Foster and Partners. They had to send home 1000 people out of 2000 because of the Credit Crunc and they are notoriously taking advantage on students… for FREE. I agree, after a certain number of people (usually 130) is a bit difficult to keep an eye on everything. Especially for an artist, who was made to create. BUT : Chaos can leads to perfection.

    Proposal we submitted or the Holmenkollen competition, rather similar to JDS:
