This thesis looks at the effect of an Olympic event on a city, region and nation, and how the legacy of the architecture for the Olympics effects the city, nation, and world before, during, and after the Olympic events. The 2022 Winter Olympics will be used as the setting for this thesis and Blafjoll, just west of Reykjavik in Iceland, will be the site for this project. This thesis is not trying to design a city for the Olympics, rather it looks at particular Olympic venues. In this case the Olympic Village and an Olympic arena. This thesis is trying to define a suitable legacy for the Olympics and building up the nation that they are being held, through the architecture built for the events.
