Produced for, and with, the organisation at the helm of the Olympic Park masterplan, this publication forms a complete guide to the site, its previous uses and the design and construction of a park that changed the face of East London forever.
In-depth articles are accompanied by a series of photographs, technical drawings, sketches and site plans to bring to life all aspects of the ambitious project that transported an area that had existed at the periphery of London’s vision into sharp focus.
