Olympicopolis mark II: reworked plans for east London cultural hub revealed


To be fair it looks like a piece of any random western city built in the last 30 years or so. Not hugely offensive but equally what's good about it? I'm sure that each building will be designed impeccably in detail and each have merits etc. though overall the impression is that nobody sat down and planned out what was to be achieved in the bigger picture. Large developments like this are few and far between and are opportunities to progress how a city is formed. This looks on the face of it to be just a repetition of things that have been done before, but maybe in an economy where it's very difficult to build anything that is good enough.
