Emblematic of the Olympic Games, Stadiums also represent a challenge for the host city. With a long history, they refer to the past while turning to the future. The Olympic Museum is exploring the adventure of these buildings, which have become must-sees at the Games, and whose impact is measured beyond the 16 days of competition.  

STADIUMS Past and Future exhibition is on show at the Olympic Museum until 7 May 2017. It features a temporary exhibition, events, a MOOK (book-magazine), an educational programme and a Serious Game  This programme is an illustration of humankind’s creativity through the various editions of the Games. It is about looking at stadiums as a whole, and not only from an architectural point of view. Building a stadium is about building the future, modifying a city’s urban landscape and leaving a legacy.
