This truly spectacular example of design was masterminded by Julien de Smedt of the Copenhagen based JDS Architects.The truly astounding Holmenkollen Ski Jump in Oslo, Norway recently came out tops in an international design competition, but the project won’t be unveiled until the World Championships in 2011. The talented Mr. De Smedt has a swag of design awards under his belt. In 2004, his Stavanger Concert Hall, was applauded “the world’s best concert hall” at the Venice Biennale; while his Maritime Youth House was nominated for the Mies van der Rohe Award and later took out London’s AR+D Award.
