Canada Olympic House

Moss and Lam created a series of feature artworks that play a major role in animating the home for Canadian athletes and their families at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, Brazil.

The installation was a major undertaking working with our design partners, Yabu Pushelberg, along with Olympic sponsors Canadian Tire who supplied the materials. Click the video link to see how it all came together.
