NLA delves into Living, Learning, Legacy: Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the book published to celebrate 10-year anniversary.
The Olympic and Paralympic Games in the summer of 2012 were a pivotal moment in the recent history of the capital, but their longer-term importance lies as a catalyst for the wider regeneration of east London, encapsulated in the concept of ‘legacy’.
NLA’s book delves into the vision, purpose and challenges that have been faced throughout the ongoing development of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and its surrounding areas from the moment London won its Olympic bid in 2005 to today and looks ahead at what is still to come.
Featuring exclusive viewpoints from key individuals involved with the development of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, as well as a project showcase, the report goes beyond providing another descriptive or historical narrative, but instead draws out key underlying principles of the London Games legacy, as these relate to the physical transformation of Stratford, and how these might inform future urban regeneration across London.
