Dr. Bass in the Athens Olympic Sports Complex,
commonly referred to as OAKA (oh-AH-ka).


A shot of "The Agora," which is the central walkway of OAKA.


The stadium in OAKA, with a distinctive roof structure
designed by Barcelona architect Santiago Calatrava,
one of the key forces behind the look of the 1992 Olympics. 
The stadium is the site of the Opening and Closing Ceremonies,
as well as the men's soccer final.


A look at the Velodrome from The Agora.

a central piece of OAKA.  Right:  A practice pool at the Aquatic Center.


The design of OAKA plays on the contrasts of white structures,
like The Agora, and water -- fountains are throughout the park.
