The object of this research is the integration of innovative technologies with the architecture of modern sports facilities. The article describes the use of new methods in the architectural and structural design and landscaping of unique Olympic sports infrastructures, namely bobsleigh, skeleton and luge track complexes. A brief historical overview of winter sled sports is made, in which the geometric analysis of tracks, their architectural styles, and land planning compositions are studied. As a recent example of the architecture of sport facilities, the article presents the author’s original contribution on the bobsleigh track of Sochi, built for the Winter Olympics, 2014. In addition, the question about using the bobsleigh tracks in the off season is also examined.
