STADIUM BUILDINGS: CONSTRUCTION AND DESIGN MANUAL. Martin Wimmer. DOM Publishers, Berlin, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Actar D/Actar Distribution Inc., New York. 320 pp. with 570 col. ills. ISBN 9783869224152 In English.
Publisher's description: From ancient stadium construction to a design object of the 21st century: sports arenas have long been turned into places hosting a global media spectacle. For a few hours or days, colossuses made of steel and concrete transform into colorful festival locations. Since the first ancient stadium in Greek Olympia, the typology of stadium construction has undergone a profound transformation: due to changes in requirements and demand, an urban entertainment centre has emerged from the simple running track in the countryside. Through selected examples of projects, this volume from the Construction and Design Manual series illustrates the development of stadiums in relation to building typologies. It provides a basic manual of stadium design using basic planning parameters. Drawings, detailed plans and large-format photos facilitate an understanding of the carefully selected examples and are used to analyze stadium construction in terms of its construction history, planning and architecture.
