Olympic Winter Games Villages from Oslo 1952 to PyeongChang 2018INTRODUCTIONToday, the Olympic Village is a key element in the organisation and success of the Games. Itbrings together the worldâ€™s athletes in a unique location, and offers them an accommodationsolution adapted to their needs during the final phase of their preparation. The concept ofOlympic Villages is the fruit of an evolution process inseparably linked to that of the OlympicGames.Already in Antiquity, in order to take part in the Olympic Games, the athletes who had comefrom different cities gathered and lived in the same place. The town of Elis became the venuefor this gathering, and at least a month before the Games, the participants arrived here tocomplete their training and receive instructions for the competitions. They then went to thesanctuary of Olympia around 60 kilometres away, and stayed there during the actual events. 1As mentioned by the historian Nicholas Yalouris, the gathering of athletes from the AncientGreek world for the Games encouraged the development of a common awareness and sharedideal. Subsequently, the scope of the ancient Olympic Games expanded with the incorporationof Greece into the Roman Empire and the participation of Roman citizens in the Games. 2For the first editions of the modern Olympic Games, between 1896 and 1920, there was noreal Olympic Village. The teams generally stayed in hotels, public or military buildings, withlocal people or even on the boats which had transported them there. The General TechnicalRules applicable to the 1924 Games in Paris stipulated that â€śThe Organising Committee forthe Olympic Games is required to provide the athletes with accommodation, bedding and food,at a fixed rate which shall be set beforehand per person and per day [ ].â€ť 3 As a result, theorganisers established an accommodation centre called the Olympic Village, and offered theteams of the different nations the chance to stay in the same location, under the sameconditions, and with common services. 4 During the preparations for the 1928 Games inAmsterdam, consideration was given to creating an Olympic Village, but the organisers optedfor other solutions. 5 For the 1932 Games in Los Angeles, however, an Olympic Village with acapacity of 2,000 people was built to the west of the city. From then on, a Village would becreated for every edition of the Summer Games, with the exception of London in 1948, whichhad to face the material challenges of the immediate post-war period. 6 For the Winter Games,1Jordi Carbonell, â€śThe Barcelona '92 Olympic Villageâ€ť, Olympic Villages, Hundred Years of Urban Planning andShared Experiences, Miquel de Moragas, Montserrat LlinĂ©s and Bruce Kidd [ed.], International Symposium onOlympic Villages Lausanne 1996, IOC, 1997, p. 141; Ludwig Drees, Olympia, Gods, Artists and Athletes, London: PallMall Press, 1967, p. 43; Nicholas Yalouris, â€śThe City of Elis.

Olympic Winter Games Villages from Oslo 1952 to PyeongChang 2018between 1924 and 1956 the teams stayed mainly in hotels, apart from the 1952 Games inOslo, where three accommodation sites were created. 7With each edition, the concept was reinforced and developed. As well as the convivialityelement, creating an Olympic Village capable of compactly housing thousands of athletes andtheir entourage members presents numerous advantages, such as economies of scale andthe optimisation of team transport. As the success of the Games has grown, the size of theVillages has increased; the services have become more diverse; and the planning andfunctions of the different areas of the site have evolved and become standardised.The transformation of the Villages has also reflected that of society. For example, for theSummer Games, until the 1950s no women were housed in the Village, but rather in otheraccommodation sites. At the 1956 Games in Melbourne, for the first time they had their ownpart of the main Village, but one to which the male athletes were not admitted. However, thewomen had access to other parts of the Village such as the dining rooms. This situationcontinued until the 1980s. Starting with the 1984 Games in Los Angeles, the athletes wereaccommodated by team, and this gender separation disappeared.Technological developments have also had an impact on the facilities and services of theOlympic Villages with, for example, the appearance of internet access in the 1990s and, at theend of the 20th century, the increasing use of materials and methods of construction aimed atsaving energy and resources.The main Olympic Village is one of the imposing architectural projects which characterises anedition of the Games. While the first ones were temporary, as in Paris in 1924 or Los Angelesin 1932, they are now built to last. So re-using them after the Olympic event is of keyimportance to the host city. The authorities see a chance to develop an innovative project,capable of creating a strong urban legacy of lasting benefit to the local population. And what ismore, the Villages built today for the Olympic Games are also used for the Paralympic Gamesheld shortly afterwards.This document presents the editions of the Olympic Winter Games for which an OlympicVillage was created. It does not include the potential plans for the editions of 1940 and 1944which were cancelled or the accommodation used when there was no main Village (before1952 or in Cortina in 1956). It does, however, provide details about any other accommodationsites arranged by the organisers in addition to the main Village. As these sites were notnecessarily called â€śvillagesâ€ť, the terminology used varied from one edition to the next. Only theaccommodation sites for athletes and team officials are presented here.Note also that, unless indicated otherwise, the data and information concerning the mainOlympic Village and additional accommodation sites refer to their specific configuration for theGames. Indeed, depending on the reconversion project for after the Games, the sites aregenerally reconfigured to adapt them to their new use. This sometimes means removinginfrastructure and temporary services or reducing the capacity of the Village, which is oftenincreased for the Games themselves.7VI Olympiske Vinterleker Oslo 1952 - VI Olympic Winter Games Oslo 1952, Rolf Petersen, Organising Committee forthe Olympic Winter Games in Oslo in 1952, Oslo: Organisasjonskomiteen, ca. 1953, p. 81.The Olympic Studies c.org6

For practical questions, the female athletes were alsoaccommodated there. The teams were split between the three Villages based on their ownpreferences. Those with the same dietary preferences were grouped together as much aspossible.The three sites offered identical service levels. They all had a post office, telephones andtelegraphs, and a laundry service. In each Village, areas were available to different serviceproviders, to allow them to offer additional facilities such as banks, kiosks, hairdressers, andsports equipment maintenance and sales.The Olympic Studies c.org8
Olympic Winter Games Villages from Oslo 1952 to PyeongChang 2018In addition to these three sites, temporary accommodation was arranged in Sogn and UllevĂĄl.The main entrances created for these two Villages were covered. At UllevĂĄl, a temporarybuilding connected the two accommodation buildings. It housed a dining hall with a capacity of210 people and a central kitchen for the three Villages, capable of delivering 3,600 meals aday. A take-away meal service was also offered for people unable to eat at the Villages at thescheduled times.AFTER THE GAMESSogn became a student village.

Originally planned on the shores of LakeTahoe, 10 minutes away from Squaw Valley, it was finally built in Squaw Valley itself, just fiveminutes on foot away from all the competition venues apart from the biathlon and crosscountry skiing.Three of the four accommodation buildings were for men, and the fourth for women. Builtbetween the summer of 1957 and March 1959, they all had a massage room and sauna.A multipurpose building called the Athletesâ€™ Centre included a 900-seat dining hall with anoutside terrace, a lounge area and a laundry service for the athletes. Nightly entertainmentprogrammes were organised in the evenings in the dining hall converted into an auditorium.Celebrities such as Dany Kaye and Esther Williams performed there.The Olympic Studies c.org11
Olympic Winter Games Villages from Oslo 1952 to PyeongChang 2018Two recreation buildings offered, for one, a cinema showing films non-stop between 1 and 9p.m. and for the other, a â€śdairy barâ€ť and a recreation room equipped with a juke box, tabletennis and board games.A reception and transport centre, medical centre, buildings for storage and for athletesâ€™equipment maintenance complete the installations of the Village. Close by, there were alsovarious other facilities, such as a hairdresserâ€™s and a training rink.AFTER THE GAMESAccording to David C. Antonucci (2009), the Village was initially used as a hotel. In 1990, itwas remodelled into timeshare condominiums and a conference centre. Two of theaccommodation buildings were destroyed. Starting in 1977, the United States OlympicCommittee used the Village as a training centre for a number of years.DID YOU KNOW?â€’ Particular attention was paid to the quality and presentation of the food. An internationallytrained team of cooks was brought in. The menus, in various languages, were posted inadvance in the rooms. At least one typical dish from each of the participating countrieswas on the menu during the Games. As a result, according to the organisers, the onlycomplaints came from coaches worried about their athletes putting on weight because ofall the tempting food on offer.SOURCESâ€’ California, Squaw Valley: United Statesâ€™ choice for the Winter Olympics, [ca 1956], n.p.â€’ David C.

Four ofthe buildings were used to create the Olympic Village for the Games. Three of them housedthe male athletes. In the fourth building, half was reserved for the female athletes, with theother half for the female staff at the Village. The furniture was loaned by the Austrian army.Each of the buildings had a restaurant on the ground floor which offered various types ofcuisine.A single-storey building built by the city was used as a team welcome area, an informationoffice and visitor reception. An 18-room leisure centre offered various leisure activities, suchas reading, television, music and table tennis. Folk evenings and variety shows featuringcontemporary performers like Eddie Fischer and Vico Torriani were organised.To ensure the smooth operation of the Village and the comfort of its Olympic guests, specificlogistical services and staff were put in place. For example, the bed linen was dealt with in theThe Olympic Studies c.org14

An Olympic accommodation complex for theGames was built as part of a wider-ranging plan for new residential areas south of the city.The complex was in two parts: the first was the Olympic Village itself, intended toaccommodate the athletes and their entourage, the second was a service centre for theOrganising Committee, the partner bodies and the public services. Made up of various types ofbuildings of different heights, a unified style was achieved, particularly through the use of woodcladding on some elements of the faĂ§ades. The architectural concept, by using the notion ofstreet and square, also aimed at recreating a living atmosphere like that of a village.Construction work began on 1 April 1966 and ended in November 1967.The Village restaurant had a capacity of 1,800 people. It consisted of four dining halls, andfour different menus were served: Nordic, Mediterranean, far eastern and central European.The Olympic Studies c.org17

In these two Villages, like the mainone in Grenoble, the athletes had access to clubs, games rooms and a cinema. Entertainmentsuch as televisions, libraries, dance floors, pool tables, table tennis and bowling.

The Village was built in a residential area around 6.5 kilometressouth of the city centre, on land previously occupied by the Hokkaido Police Academy. It was afew hundred metres from the two rinks where, in one, the Opening Ceremony and the speedskating competitions were held and, in the other, the Closing Ceremony as well as the icehockey and figure skating competitions. Work started in mid-April 1970.The section of the Village reserved for women consisted of two 11-storey buildings. For theirpart, the men stayed in the 18 five-storey buildings. A clinic covering roughly 550 squaremetres was set up in a one-storey building.The Olympic Studies c.org20
