Research on Historical Origin of Olympic Village

Xia Gao, Te Bu

Abstract


Honored as “heart” of Olympic Games, Olympic Village has its special status and value in the history of Olympic Games. After modern Olympic Games had passed for 36 years, the first Olympic Village with a groundbreaking meaning emerged in Los Angeles in 1932, which set up an ideal model for Olympic Villages in the future. Ever since Olympic Village was developed from its initial concept to an entity and was continuously developed and changed, Olympic Village gradually enriched the connotation of Olympism and was further interpretation of Olympic Value. The purpose of establishment of an Olympic Village was to construct an appropriate community space so as to spread friendship, stimulate communication and fulfill the eternal value of peace and progress pursued by Olympic Games.
