Erik Nitsche: The Olympia Zentrum in Germany
Artist: Erik Nitsche
The Olympia Zentrum in Munich is featured in this artwork. In the background is the rotating tower that houses a restaurant and in the far background is the Bayerische Motoren Werke (BMW) building. The Olympia Zentrum featured in the foreground was designed by Gunter Behnisch, who was born in 1922 in Lockwitz, and by Frei Otto, who was born in Siegmar. Otto is considered the pioneer of the "tent construction" seen in the Olympia Zentrum. The tents are made of steel webbing and cables and are carried by masts or arches. Among other works, Otto is famous for the Pavilions at the Lausanne, Switzerland Expo 64 and the German Pavilion at the 1962 Worlds Fair in Montreal, Canada.
