Transplant

Currently standing in the centre of Lenbachplatz are three concrete housing units transplanted from the Olympic Village.



After the 1972 Games the Olympic Village provided low cost and student housing. Now, with the site undergoing major renovation these particular units form the centrepiece of an art and architecture project.

After three months in Ratzingerplatz they were moved to Lenbachplatz in October and will remain there until the end of this month. As well as the buildings there are exhibitions, lectures and public meetings taking place in the houses.

German readers can find out more at the project website.
