Date30 July – 14 August 1932
StatusOlympic
LocationLos Angeles Museum of History, Science and Art, Los Angeles, California
Participants47 from 13 countries

There were 58 participants from 14 countries who took part in architecture with 63 exhibits (including „hors concours“). The architects were offered a wide range of possibilities. There were drawings, watercolors, perspective drawings, sketches and photographs of construction projects to be submitted, „… whose ultimate purpose is related to the training exercises of sport, such as stadiums, sports grounds, playgrounds, covered lanes, club buildings, boat houses, gymnasiums, bathhouses etc., and meet high artistic standards.“ The exhibits for the two competitions “Town Planning” and “Architectural Design” were identical, but were assessed separately for both categories. Therefore, works that were not awarded with a medal cannot be attributed to either category.

In architecture, all six medals were awarded. Probably for the first time, so-called “Honourable Mentions” were also expressed. The jury for architecture consisted of mostly well- architects from the USA.
