Interview with architect and planner of the simlympic park of Jarira, Sjoerd Kremer

Sjoerd, what is your main goal you want to reach with your design of the new park?

Well, for me and for the whole Jarira society, it's the most important that the park will be good for the environment. Some of the details of the green things in the park are: we will build air filters in the park. It will provide fresher air in the whole area around the simlympic park. It's very important for the athletes that they can feel and perform good during the games. The most stadiums in the park will be connect to each other with pedestrian paths and not with roads. Nevertheless, there will be roads in the simlympic park, but these will connect the park with the city and other important places around the park. The last thing is that the mass transportation in the park will be provided by monorails. With the monorail you can reach all the important places in the city. The are very clean and they almost won't give pollution.

Which stadiums you want to place into the park?

I'm not sure right now, though I already know I will place a lot of stadiums inside the park for the most sports. The Simlympic Stadium, the aquatics center, the velodrome and a lot of arenas for sports like basketball, handball and volleyball, will be placed inside the park. About some sports I'm not sure yet. Sports like outdoor swimming and canoeing are still in discussion, because there are more options for it. A whole guide will be expected soon.

What will the Simlympic Park of Jarira offer for the simlympics?

We will offer a green park, which will be good for the environment. A lot of trees, grassfields and a lake will be placed inside the park. The Simlympic Village will be in the park as well and will be very green too. The distances inside the park between the sport venues will be short and you can walk around the park and visit every venue easily. I will design a whole new wide, green and beautiful park, which will be easily accessible by everybody and will give as well as visitors as athletes the best possibilities to have a Simlympics like the have never experienced before.

Here some preview photos of some venues in the Simlympic Park, Simlympic Park guide will come soon.

Brief history
Before 1980 (when there was found oil in the ground of the Federated States of Arabia) the FSA were a country that lived on trading with neighbour countries. Karim Abdul Khaled I was the first sheik when the oil was found in the FSA. Though, the country could become very rich, Karim Abdul Khaled I decided to put all the oil money he earned in the national oil company: the Arabian Oil Company. The money he earned from the oil he kept for his own, because he was the major shareholder of the company. He didn't want to change the country because of the oil. After he stopped to be the sheik, Karim Abdul Khaled II became the first sheik. He did want to change the country and invisted in the first big projects of Jarira. The first building he built was the Arabian Oil Company Tower. Unfortunately, Karim Abdul Khaled II died 3 years after his beginning to be first sheik, because of a helicopter accident. Karim Abdul Khaled I became first sheik again. He stopped all the projects his son started immidiately again. Now, Jarira is developing again, by Karim Abdul Khaled III, who is first sheik now for 3 years. He made Jarira from a little fisherman's town to the developing supermodern metropol it will be.
