Olympic Stadium and Tower, Helsinki

1952

Though Finland typically dominates winter sports, it played host to the Summer Olympics in 1952. The Olympic Stadium in Helsinki, with its striking 238-foot-tall tower, was actually designed decades earlier by architects Yrjö Lindegren and Toivo Jäntti and completed in 1938. A huge structure, it accommodated 70,000 spectators during opening ceremonies.
