Architecture of sport. From the commemoration of sport to commercial marketing

language: french

publication date: August 2012

abstract: Is the architecture of sport specific, or does it reflect the city, the society, the politics? This article analyzes numerous sports facilities of various types, in France and in Europe, since the beginning of the XXth century until today. It shows a double evolution of the meaning of the sports architecture: on one hand, from the sport to the show and, on the other hand, from the political power and the culture of the city to the economic power.
