Summary The photographer offers the viewer an objective yet aesthetically captivating look at what now awaits visitors to the elaborately planned and expensive sports venues. The variety of possible subsequent uses shown here is both insightful and educational. It also demonstrates the effectiveness of architecture in an environment that is beyond the reaches of planning control. A book that is both poetic and inspiring
