LEICA photo shoot at the Munich Olympiastadion by Günther Behnisch and Frei Otto in München, Germany. The lightweight tent construction of the Olympiastadion was considered revolutionary for its time. This included large sweeping canopies of acrylic glass stabilized by steel cables that were used for the first time on a large scale. The idea was to imitate the Alps. The Olympiastadion was built as the main venue for the 1972 Summer Olympics.
