Then Again, Sometimes the Area is the View 

The Fisht Stadium isn't the only impressive structure built for the Games. The 12,000-seat Bolshoy Ice Dome, home to the hockey events, is a sight in and of itself. The roof of the dome is covered in more than 30,000 LEDs, which illuminate the outside of the arena in different colors at night. During the day, with the colored lights off, the arena will be all silver, meant to look like a frozen drop of water.
