Olympic Park, Munich

1972

German architect/engineer Frei Otto came to prominence by creating temporary tent structures, including one for the West German Pavilion at the Montreal World Exposition of 1967. The largest and most enduring, designed together with Günter Behnisch, was made for the 1972 Munich Games. The sweeping tensile structure covers Olympic Park and has become an attraction in itself. While the site continues to host sporting events and concerts, it also offers guided roof climbs for adventurous visitors.
