From the religious sporting competitions of ancient Greece and the often bloody games of the imperial Roman circus, through to the modern sporting arena, the stadium has inspired architects to create some of the largest and most technically accomplished buildings ever created. Today this legacy is continued in the great sporting arenas and stadia that have been raised to house such important events as the modern Olympic Games (the Olympic Stadium at Stratford). This exhibition catalogue explores the origins of the modern sports stadium in antiquity and will look at how modern architects have both responded to this legacy and gone beyond it. This beautifully presented exhibition catalogue is 112 pages and illustrated with full colour images.
