4 Architecture of the Games Magazine #2


Introduction 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. Martijn Giebels

PyeongChang is a district situated in the eastern province of Gangwon-do, located 130 kilometres from the South Korean capital Seoul. The competition venues were divided over two clusters: a Mountain Cluster in PyeongChang and a Coastal Cluster in the seaside city of Gangneung. Six new venues had been built for the Olympic Winter Games: two in the Mountain Cluster and four in the Coastal Cluster.

The Mountain Cluster had the pentagonal Olympic Stadium as an eye-catcher. This stadium was the first temporary Olympic Stadium in history. Competitions took place in Alpensia (including in a newly built sliding center), Yongpyong, Jongseon and Bokwang. In the Coastal Cluster, all ice sports took place in five venues. One of these already existed: the Curling Centre from 1998 in the north of the city. Three new venues were built near the Curling Centre and together, these constituted the Gangneung Olympic Park. Additionally, a new ice hockey stadium was built near the Kwandong Catholic University in the southeastern part of Gangneung. During the first week of the Games I stayed in Gangneung and visited events in both clusters. 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.
