Description
The Olympisch Stadion was built as the main stadium for the 1928 Summer Olympics in Amsterdam. When completed, the stadium had a capacity of 31,600. The Olympisch Stadion was designed by architect Jan Wils, and is one of the finest examples of Amsterdamse School architecture, complementing the surrounding neighbourhood designed by H.P. Berlage. The design won the Olympic gold medal in the architecture competition at the 1928 Olympics. AFC Ajax has used the Olympisch Stadion for international games until 1996, when the Amsterdam ArenA was completed. Since 2005, the stadium is home to a sports museum, the Olympic Experience Amsterdam. It is no longer used as a football stadium. #1928 #amsterdam #amsterdam_zuid #amsterdamse_school #architecture #first_olympic_flame #Jan_Wils #marathontoren #olympic #olympisch #stadion #stadionplein #stadium #wils
