The iconic Olympic buildings infographic takes readers on a historical trip of epic proportions.

Featuring everything from immensely old Grecian stadiums to this year's London 2012 swimming arena. Showing great variety depending on time and era, this highlights the general evolution of the games as well as the way in which location affects design. Increasingly modern, but all equally impressive in their own right, the buildings featured are an offbeat way to pay tribute to the gaming events of years passed.

The chart itself is exceptionally well-designed and relatively simple. Featuring a gray-scaled background juxtaposed with brightly colored illustrations of the actual buildings, the depictions are not only accurate and recognizable, but eye-popping as well.
