The landscape architecture panel meanwhile features East, Gustafson Porter, muf architecture/art, HASSELL, J & L, Amsterdam-based Strootman Landschapsarchitecten Gibbons Kinnear Landscape Architects and Churchman Landscape Architects.
The successful applicants to the graphic design and visualisations panel were appetite, Dog Star, Arup, Greenspace, Hyperkit, Premm Design, Uniform and Battersea-based Squint / Opera.
The Legacy Corporation will issue mini competitions to the panel for projects including the design for a new canal side park along Lee Navigation.
Design guidance for the five new neighbourhoods and support for development projects on the Park and surrounding areas will also be tendered to the group.
Andrew Altman, London Legacy Development Corporation chief executive, said: ‘The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will be defined by high quality design running through the neighbourhoods, venues, parklands and public spaces.
‘Legacy plans are further ahead than any previous Olympic host city and this is a great opportunity for architects and designers to help shape the future of the Park after the Games.’
