Architecture of the Games Magazine #2 – February 2019

This is the second edition of ‘Architecture of the Games Magazine’. This magazine is available to read for free via electronic publishing platform Issuu. ‘Architecture of the Games Magazine’ is a non-commercial, educational project and all contributors have offered their work on a voluntary basis.

Exactly one year ago the XXIII Olympic Winter Games took place in the Republic of Korea. PyeongChang 2018 will go down in history for multiple reasons; not only because of the participation of North Korea and the many memorable sporting achievements, but also because of the excellent organization of the event and the South Korean hospitality.

During the first week of the Games I stayed in Gangneung and visited events in both the ‘Coastal Cluster’ as ‘Mountain Cluster’. The photo essay in this magazine documents my visit. I wanted to capture the entire Olympic visitor experience; showing the part of the Games that is often hidden to viewers at home.
