Last weekend we have done a major update on this website. The best way to keep track of all updates is by reading our changelog. All notable changes to this website will be documented on this page.
Today, Architecture of the Games announces the release of the first edition of ‘Architecture of the Games Magazine’. This bilingual magazine is available to read for free; (link). ‘Architecture of the Games Magazine’ is a non-commercial, educational project and all contributors have offered their work on a voluntary basis.
In ‘Architecture of the Games Magazine’ we take a look at the Olympic Games from the perspective of the designer. We will be paying special attention to the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang. Other topics include Rio 2016, the new Candidature Process for the 2026 Olympic Winter Games and the Olympic Legacy of Barcelona 1992 and London 2012. In the last section you will find a report of our visit to ‘Olympic Capital’ Lausanne.

From the 9th to 25th of February 2018, PyeongChang will play host to the first Olympic Winter Games in the Republic of Korea. In the past days we have updated the PyeongChang 2018 section on this website. In the run-up to the Games, more content will be added.
After a week full of news it’s time to look forward. These are our plans for the second half of 2017;
- We will continue:
- Our coverage of the 2024/2028 Candidature Procedure up to and including the 131th IOC session in Lima.
- The series on ‘Barcelona 1992; 25 Years later’ and ‘Olympic bids from the past’.
- We start a new serie about the legacy related developments in Rio de Janeiro in the past year.
- A visit to London for the IAAF World Championships in the former Olympic Stadium. We also pay attention to the Olympic Legacy, 5 years after the Games.
- And off course we will follow the final preparations of PyeongChang 2018 and Buenos Aires 2018.
You can submit your news or project by email. All submissions received will be reviewed. We only publish content that is related to design and the Olympic Games.
