Olympic Cities Book & Exhibition Design

with XML

Working within a team in collaboration with XML Architects and Planners, a comparative study on Olympic candidatures was made, on behalf of the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment and Atelier Making Projects. This materialised into the publication 'Olympic Cities: the Netherlands as Game Changer', and an interactive installation at the NAI Rotterdam Biennale of 2012.

"The study placed Dutch aspirations to host the 2028 Olympic Games in an international perspective by comparing the various bids by Madrid, Istanbul, Doha and Tokyo for the 2020 Games and the South African bid for the 2024 Games. Furthermore, XML developed three models for a possible Dutch bid for the 2028 Games. On the eve of the London Olympics, the two parts of this study are combined in the publication 'Olympic Cities: the Netherlands as Game Changer.'"
