The Olympic Museum’s traveling exhibitions

As ISHA institutions work to keep their exhibits fresh and try to provide new experiences for visitors, they often turn to traveling exhibits. The Olympic Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland has two traveling exhibitions, one which is currently available to ISHA member institutions  and one that wuill be available in July of 2017.

The first is called “Bougez” or “Get Active” and is available now. The exhibit is modular, requires 250-350 square meters and is available in three languages.

This exhibit encourages touching, running and doing. The visitor enters an unusual house consisting of six rooms: kitchen, laundry room. office, bathroom, bedroom and living room. The activities highlight and explain seven skills that are essential for moving and sport: coordination, flexibility, balance, endurance, strength, bone strengthening and cooperation. The participants gauge themselves through play. Click the “Get Active” link below for more information on this exciting exhibit.

The second exhibition, which will be available starting in July of 2017 is Called “Stadiums, Theaters of Sport.”

It is modular, requires 400-600 square meters and is currently available in English and French, although other adaptations are possible.

Since the Ancient Games, the stadium has transformed little by little, becoming more structured and now multi-functional. Its place in the city has also changed, and its social role has affirmed itself.

From being a place of experimentation and audacity, the stadium has become an “architectural gesture,” an added value created by the greatest architects, which always appears in the city’s or region’s tourist brochures.

This exhibition sets out to look at the stadium, this rather frightening colossus, through the prism of time. From its beginning in Atiquity to the stadium of the future, the stadium will be looked at as a whole, and not just in terms of architecture.
