Exhibition opening - "The Olympic City of Munich"
On Wednesday, the exhibition "The Olympic City of Munich" opened at the TUM Museum of Architecture. Numerous visitors attended the opening, held in the central foyer of the Pinakothek der Moderne, where they listened to opening speeches by Andreas Lepik (Director of the TUM Museum of Architecture), City Planning Officer Elisabeth Merk, Regine Keller (Head of the TUM Department of Architecture) and Exhibition Curator Irene Meissner.
Finally, Fritz Auer (at the time a partner in the office Behnisch und Partner) talked about how this unique project came about and the challenges faced at the time in designing and implementing the world-famous tent roof. He has written down his memories of the time in the book "Ein Zeltdach für München" ("A tent roof for Munich", published by Allitera Verlag), including in it documents, newspaper clippings, sketches and photos from the period.
The large-scale exhibition with numerous previously unknown documents and models can be viewed at the TUM Museum of Architecture until the beginning of 2023.
