Discussion Olympic Games Tent Commentary

"The roof of the main stadium and indoor arenas for the 1972 Munich Olympic Games, designed by G焠ter Behnisch with Otto [Frei Otto] as roof design consultant, realized an entirely new scale for this type of structure, and led to the pioneering of purely mathematical computer-based procedures for determining their shape and behaviour."

— Dennis Sharp, ed. The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Architects and Architecture. p116-7.

"The various 'tent' and 'umbrella' roof erected at Munich were the culmination of Otto's many years' experience. Earlier examples had indicated the potential of such temporary but economical large-span structures. But at Munich the scale was tremendous, involving the erection and linking of varied amoeba-shaped tents: the major areas covered included the main stadium, on one side only, linked to the arena and the swimming area, both wholly covered. The roof covering the main stadium consisted of a PVC-coated polyester fabric suspended on hangers independent of the cable net. The supporting masts held the main cables in tension, thus providing the necessary support for hanging roof areas."

— John Julius Norwich, ed. Great Architecture of the World. p239.
