International architects RMJM is launching a new global sports design studio and has appointed a key designer of the Beijing Olympics ‘Watercube’, John Pauline, as its Design Principal.

RMJM, which designed the Convention Centre at the recent Beijing Olympics to host the biggest media centre in Olympian history and helped win the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games bid, is aiming to build upon its recent success for its sport-related work with the launch of ‘RMJM Sport’. The new studio will be headed up by Pauline who is one of the world’s most experienced designers of sporting venues, having worked on projects at four Olympic Games.

In addition to being a key designer of the 2008 Olympic National Aquatic Centre (known as the Watercube) and Athletes Village at Beijing, Pauline also acted as a competition venue planning specialist to the Beijing Organising Committee. He has particular expertise in sports planning, event architecture and large multi-use master planning projects, although he has also worked on international residential and commercial projects and sizable cultural projects including theatres, libraries, schools and galleries.

RMJM Chief Executive, Peter Morrison said: “We have built a strong reputation in designing sporting venues and we are now looking to take this to the next level by establishing RMJM Sport, led by John who is a leading authority in this area. His vast experience and specialist knowledge, not only in designing sporting venues but also in coordinating multiple stakeholders and consultants, will bring added value to our clients.”
