These are images of the 2012 Olympic shooting venue designed by Magma Architecture. The German-based firm has finished supervising the construction of the three temporarily London-based shooting pavilions where athletes will line up and aim weapons at targets 10, 25 and 50 meters away.

The temporary structures are covered in white PVC that stretches between huge, colorful dimples that accommodate ventilation as well as doors in and out of the venues. What’s more, the dimples keep the PVC skin held in tension, so the skin won’t flap around in the wind. When the London Games are done, the three structures will be dismantled and packed away, ready for reuse in future sporting events.
