Stadiums: Past and Future explores the facilities cities have built to host the Games – from the Olympia in Ancient Greece through to modern architectural icons such as Frei Otto’s Munich Olympic Stadium and Herzog and de Meuron’s Bird’s Nest in Beijing.
Curated by Geraint John, senior advisor at sports architects Populous and former chief architect at the GB Sports Council, the multi-media exhibition considers the engineering innovations used to build flexible Olympic venues and the environmental, social and economic challenges of creating stadiums that can have a long-term positive impact on the city where they are built.
