File documents Cedric Price's competition entry for the design of one of the pedestrian plazas at the Olympic Village for the 1972 Olympics held in Munich, Germany. The limited competition was originally awarded to Cedric Price, but later withdrawn, and the project was never executed. The proposal called for market stalls/exhibition stands, seating, groups of spherical structures that would emit light, sound, warm or cool air, and a large central sphere that would provide multi-media projections and information. Some material from this file was submitted for publication in 'L'Architecture d'aujourd'hui' (1972) and 'Bauen + Wohnen' (1972). Material in this file was produced between 1971 and 1972.
File contains conceptual drawings, photographic materials, presentation drawings, reference drawings, and textual records.
