Olympic Stadium, Berlin

1936

These were the Olympic Games of Adolf Hitler. But also of Jesse Owens, who won four gold medals. Designed by Werner March, the Berlin Olympic Stadium embodies the severe austerity of Nazi-era architecture, setting the scene for Leni Riefenstahl’s documentary Olympia. One of the few large structures in the city to survive the war, it has continued to host sporting events, most notably the dramatic final match of the 2006 FIFA World Cup.
