The legacy of memory : the Stockholm and Helsinki Olympic stadia as living memorials / Alan Bairner

Bairner, Alan

The afterlife of the Stockholm Olympic stadium of 1912 and the Helsinki stadium of 1952, which are both ‘living’ spaces was unplanned. Both have been upgraded with improved transport links and continue to act not just as sports venues but, as ‘living memorials’ or ‘sites of memory’ where the cultural identity of the nation is rooted in the remembered lives of its sporting heroes.
