Athletic Abodes- A Sneak Peak Into Olympic Village

With Olympic fever sweeping the world, I got curious about what kind of housing the athletes had at the 2012 Olympics in London.   Here are some neat photographs of the Olympic Village.  Notice that while the dormitories are given very simple and somewhat utilitarian decor, the recreation and leisure areas are filled with fun kitsch and a mix of traditional and modern furnishings.  It was fun to see what kinds of details were included in the village, such as a spa, bar, performance space, lounges and more.  Check it out and don't forget to cheer on our teams to the gold!

Does the designer of the Olympic Village deserve a gold medal for the design of the spaces?  You decide!
