ODA shuns Athletes' Village design panel precedent

The Olympic Delivery Authority’s head of design, Jerome Frost, has pledged that the forthcoming Olympic Design Panel (ODP) will not be run in the same way as Lend Lease’s Athletes’ Village design panel.

Lend Lease has taken flak over the running of its now 45 practice-strong panel after Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios and Haworth Tompkins both turned down the chance to work on the scheme, saying they were ‘too busy’, amid fears that much of the project had already been designed (AJ 06.12.07).

Frost said members of the ODP, the tender for which will be released in the spring, will design a ‘whole series of small buildings including benches
and kiosks, that will contribute to the memorable character of the park’.
