About the Book

With a wealth of archival images, stadium stories and reminiscences by athletes, supporters and those who worked on the building and organisation, this new volume is a richly illustrated souvenir of the changing design and purpose of Olympic stadia over the past century. It shows how the International Olympic Committee works with Olympic venues to build an Olympic stadium that responds to the needs of the city, looking in particular at iconic stadia built to showcase architectural prowess and attract international attention. A timeline reveals how architecture has changed over the past century, and there are fascinating interviews with those who took part; athletes, architects, and the people who worked behind the scenes.
