The Olympic City is an ongoing photography project by Jon Pack and Gary Hustwit that looks at the legacy of the Olympic Games in former host cities around the world. Hosting the Olympics has become a way for a city to show itself off on an international stage and generate tourism dollars, and cities spend millions or billions for the privilege. But after the events are over, the medals have been handed out, and the torch is extinguished, what’s next? What happens to a city after the Olympics are gone.

Originally released as an edition of 1,000 printed books this digital version has been designed and enhanced specifically for mobile devices, allowing for a fully immersive and enjoyable representation of the original book. It includes the original 200 photos and a foreword by New York Times architecture critic Michael Kimmelman.
