Anisha Gade: Olympic Urbanism: The Athletes' Village



Amsterdam, 1928
Early Olympians were housed wherever there was room. The nearly 3,000 athletes at the 1928 Amsterdam games were stashed in schools, hotels, boarding houses, private homes and ships. Pictured here is housing for American competitors and officials aboard the U.S.S. President Roosevelt.
