Sochi

Bonfires

We judge not only the best features but also the periphery.  Sochi’s role as Olympic venue host is experiencing a full dose of duality.  The competition venues appear well designed and the athletes mostly happy, however the media and guests are left wanting.  Just lighting a bonfire in the middle of the field and calling it an gathering is rarely acceptable.  The brilliance occurs when the planning and execution of details match the magnitude of the flames.
