- before unveiling Olympic Exploratory

  • Comment
The government has unveiled proposals to open a new Olympic centre based on the highly successful Hackney Building Exploratory.

Secretary of State for Culture Tessa Jowell, speaking this morning to the UK's largest architecture practices at the AJ 100 Breakfast Club at Claridges in central London, revealed plans for the Olympic Exploratory.

The minister said she was highly impressed by the centre in Hackney - which aims to teach children about architecture and the built environment - and wanted to see it mirrored in the Olympic zone.

'This Olympic exploratory will have a focus for young people,' she said. 'It will teach them about the Olympic sites' history and their future. This is a really exciting project.'
