Apex Legends player finds Olympus building in real life

Apex Legends’ Season 7 map Olympus has won over plenty of fans thanks to its unique design, and one player has discovered some real-life buildings that look exactly like the ones in the game.

Apex Legends Season 7 is filled to the brim with exciting content as well as a brand new map. The floating city of Olympus has many interesting landscapes and memorable landmarks that have made it popular within the Apex community.

The map’s layout is unique compared to the rocky terrains of Kings Canyon and World’s Edge. A common topic of discussion among fans is what it would be like to live in the types of buildings that are on Olympus.

It turns out that Respawn may have taken inspiration for the map’s architecture from a real-life place. One Apex player has found a building that closely resembles the architecture from the map.

Apex Olympus building found in real life

In a now-removed thread on the Apex Legends subreddit, a user named u/TacticalTapir discovered a real life building that looks exactly like the small structures found in the Gardens and Estates POIs on Olympus.

These two locations are popular spots for players to visit and duke it out. This is because they have a unique aesthetic and resemble something you’d see in Blade Runner. The Reddit user’s discovery sparked a discussion in the comments.

The replies to this thread mainly consisted of a discussion about whether or not these buildings would make comfortable living spaces. A few people loved the designs and said things like “many people like that…clean, minimal furniture rooms.. I’m one of them.”

On the other hand, certain comments mocked the design. “You can do minimalist without the spacial awareness… from an architectural standpoint the houses are incredibly poorly designed.”

Regardless of what you think about the architectural ingenuity of the building designs in Garden, it’s amusing to see Apex fans arguing over something as small as a real-life building design.

We’re not certain if Respawn took inspiration from this structure when designing Garden and Estates for Apex Legends Season 7 or if this is just a huge coincidence. It’s possible they may have used it as a source and it makes a for a small but cool find eitherway.
