The Athens Olympic Sports Complex is the central group of facilities built for the 2004 Summer Olympics. The complex has been revamped for the games under a design by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. It is located in Marousi, in the north-east part of Athens, and consists of five different venues: the Olympic Indoor Hall; the Athens Olympic Aquatic Centre; the Athens Olympic Tennis Centre; the Athens Olympic Velodrome and the Olympic Stadium. The latter was originally built in 1982 and was extensively refurbished for the 2004 games, including the addition of a roof.
