Bloomberg: The Best of Olympic Architecture


Recommended Posts

Repost of my post on Bloomberg site:

1) Got to include Pier Luigi Nervi's Palazzetto dello Sport for the 1960 Rome Olympics in this gallery.

2) If you're going to include a building from London 2012, make it the Velodrome. Zaha's building is one of her poorest, at least in the configuration shown (and used during the games). Expecting more from her in Tokyo 2020.

3) The Palavela in Torino isn't too shabby at all, either.
