Olympiadorf - Olympic Village Munich, 1972 by 


The Olympic Village in Munich was built for the XXth Olympic Summer Games in 1972. Architects. Heinle, Wischer und Partner“.
Protected buildings since 1998 – which can make life hard for those who now own some of the appartments.
It is a mixture of student accommodation – mostly those bungalows in the foreground – and private ownership with around 6,000 residents in approx. 3,500 units. It is one of the popular areas to live in Munich especially for families with young children.

I translated the text from Olympisches Dorf I’m really surpised there is no real English version.

Location: Olympic Village, Munich, Bavaria, Germany. Captured from the Olympic Tower. Captured in 2004.
Camera: Nikon Coolpix 885.
Featured in German Artists
Post-pro: Revisted and processed as part of the Solo Exhibition Cityscape Workshop. Crop, slight straightening. Noise reduction, added vignetting, nostalgic film effect in CS4 with NikCollection. Thank you so much to everyone for ths support and suggestions:-)

    This is superb Kasia. Are you a pilot/cabin crew or something similar?

  • Thank you:-) No, I’m not cabin crew or the like, but there was a spell when I was up in the air a lot, and I must admit I love viewing the world from above. This shot was actually taken from the top of the Olympic Tower. Kind regards across the miles, Kasia
