Olympic stadiums : people, passion, stories = Stades olympiques : des hommes, des passions, des histoires / curated and ed. at the Olympic Foundation for Culture and Heritage

International Olympic Committee. Culture and Heritage Department

Edited by D Giles Limited - 2016

With a wealth of archival images, photos of athletes in action and detailed shots of the stadiums in which they perform, this new volume is a richly illustrated souvenir of the changing design and purpose of Olympic stadiums over the past century. Ten features examine the politics, architecture, future, sustainability and the creative and artistic impact of Olympic stadiums; they show how the International Olympic Committee works with Organizing Committees for the Olympic Games to build stadiums that respond to the long term needs of a city, and look at iconic stadiums that demonstrate architectural prowess and attract international attention. A visual timeline reveals how architecture has changed over the past century, and interviews with athletes and with those who work in and on the stadiums, including London 2012 artist-in-residence Neville Gabie, paint a fascinating picture of the life of the Olympic stadiums.
