significant catalyst of urban change and can act as a key instrument of urban policy for their host cities This paper reviews the effect of the Games on the built environment of the various cities which have acted as hosts in the modern Olympic period 1896 1996 and assesses the preparations now being made for the Games in Sydney in the year 2000 The review indicates that the Games have been increasingly used as a trigger for a wide range of urban improvements although there have been considerable variations in the scale of infrastructural investment and in the public private sector mix

urbanization Recent decades have seen an increased interest from the world s major cities to bid for international sporting events and to use them as agents for urban transformation In this paper the particular focus is that of urban development driven by the preparation for the Olympic Summer Games Starting with Coubertin s utopian concept for the creation of a modern Olympia Olympic urbanization has been developing for over a century The result is that in various cities with often diverse urban patterns and cultures the Games have left very different impacts on the local environment This paper outlines the history and changes in urbanization within those cities that have acted as hosts during the modern Olympic period 1896 2012 It also discusses key factors in connection with the

Post-modern Turn: The Olympics and Urban Transformations The Olympics are analysed from an urban perspective as an event that has an impact on cities beyond sport The focus of the paper is on post event outcomes and particularly on Olympic related facilities and how they are used once the Olympics are over The 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics serves as the primary illustration of the processes described The transformation of the urban order is discussed in terms of the post modern turn and it is shown how the Olympics are affected by and contributes to the support of the shift toward leisure consumption as a dominant theme in the new urban symbolic economy Issues such as place marketing urban restructuring urban regionalization surveillance and social exclusion are also related to post Olympic outcomes http://radar.brookes.ac.uk/radar/items/5e81fada-72b3-5a12-3849-eb268f52e213/1 http://radar.brookes.ac.uk/radar/items/5e81fada-72b3-5a12-3849-eb268f52e213/1 Post-event Outcomes
