Olympiapark

Olympiapark

The Olympiapark in Munich, Germany, is an Olympic Park which was constructed for the 1972 Summer Olympics. Found in the area of Munich known as the "Oberwiesenfeld" ("upper meadow-field"), the Park continues to serve as a venue for cultural, social, and religious events such as events of worship.

I was drawn to the park for its unique massive tensile structure, which looks like a series of interlinked metal tent skelstons. Its actually a construction of elements carrying only tension and no compression or bending and was an architectural achievement when first constructed. In this image I liked how the curvature of the ferris wheel aligned itself with the curvature of the structure, showing the power and grace of elements under tension
