Architecture of sports stadiums

End Date 20/06/2010
Location Munich
Country Germany
Description A new exhibition in Munich's Architekturmuseum der TU München in the Pinakothek der Moderne will feature sports stadiums designs by architects von Gerkan, Marg und Partner (gmp).

Taking examples from Cape Town to Brasilia, the exhibition on gmp’s most recent sports stadiums at the Architekturmuseum der TU München shows how state-of-the-art technology and the genius loci can best be integrated. Gmp’s motto for aesthetic structures of classical engineering always applies to their projects: ‘less is more’. The firm's new stadiums, which range from projects for this year’s World Cup in South Africa to the next World Cup in Brazil in 2014, highlight an architectural language derived from the logic of construction, function and a reference to the geographical site.
