I wanted to take you back to the Olympiadorf or Olympic Village – one because I found some amazing colors in the student housing area (as in this photo), and also because it’s an interesting test in urban living. Described as the world’s only settlement in which separation of car & pedestrian traffic succeeded, the Olympiadorf houses approx 10,000 residents of Munich in more than 4600 apartments across more than 40 hectacres. With more than 70 different floor plans ranging from small single unit studios to 140 m2 penthouse apartments, the Olympiadorf offers many options. At the same time, the press has been critical – labeling it a concrete fortress. Check it out for yourself. Let me know your thoughts – model or mass housing?
