We marveled at Beijing's structures in 2008, now the spotlight is on Vancouver Olympic architecture. The gallery here shows some of the newly constructed buildings in the host city of the 2010 Olympics.

The Vancouver Olympic architecture featured here includes the Vancouver Convention Centre, the Richmond Olympic Oval (made of trees killed naturally due to the infestation of Mountain pine beetles) and the 2010 Commerce Centre.

Implications - When global competitions such as the Olympics come to an area, the city will fund clean-up initiatives and beautification projects as well as build new facilities. This is because the amount of tourists will pay for the money spent through visiting landmarks, spending money at local stops and staying in hotels.
