Munich '72
Design Legacy
Exhibition and
University for
the Creative Arts

Consultant: Ian McLaren



This exhibition at the UCA Canterbury campus presents the design heritage of the Munich Olympiad during 1972. The project draws upon Ian McLaren’s collection of relevant material (some of which can be seen on this website) obtained as a result of his having been a senior member of the design team. The exhibition provides a first hand account of the evolution of the designs and subsequent commercialisation of aspects of the work produced for Munich’72. An accompanying symposium will combine contributions from figures who worked with Aicher alongside respected practicing designers. The exhibition coincides with the passage of the Olympic flame through Kent.
