Architecture for Sport
edited by Peter Stürzebecher

Architecture for Sport showcases top achievements in international sports architecture of the last ten years, introducing 25 magnificent projects by leading architects throughout the world.

These projects represent a new and exciting fusion of architecture with the spirit of engineering, corporate architecture, futuristic design and sport. Each one is described from conception to completion, with detailed texts complemented by high-quality photographs and accurate drawings.

The project presentations are supported by specialist contributions by international authors exploring issues such as the relationship between form and temporary/long-term use, and that between building and landscape/town, to name a few.

Architecture for Sport offers a valuable resource to architects, planners, engineers, organizers of sports events and sports clubs, municipal decision-makers, managers in the building and construction industry, investors and events managers.
