On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Olympic Games, the European Athletics Championships took place from August 15th to 21st, 2022 in the Munich Olympic Park. Where 1540 athletes from 47 nations fought for 50 medal decisions, our LED container could not be missing as event companion.
Located at the Olympiasee, on the side of the BMW World and Sea Life, he accompanied the competitions and side acts with different information about the competition events and the supporting program of the entire Olympic Park. It was therefore the perfect addition to the Olympic Park's anniversary pavilion, which we built in March 2022 with our ATF 220 crane for the celebrations lasting several months in the middle of the Olympic Lake (see corresponding project report).
For Schmidbauer, both projects are also a return to old places of activity: the Olympic facilities have a long history in common, because when the task at hand was to create the infrastructure for the major event from the mid-1960s, Schmidbauer was already on the spot. Whether setting up the floodlights in the stadium, installing the auxiliary supports for the tent roof construction or transplanting more than 5,000 trees: it is also thanks to Schmidbauer that the „Olympiapark“ looks the way it does today.
So 50 years of the Olympic Games is also an anniversary for Schmidbauer – even in our own anniversary year! A great opportunity to get involved in the design of the area again – this time even digitally.
