The Olympic Park changed the public perception of landscape architecture. One of the most successful legacies of the park was groundbreaking design that created a place for the Olympics but also a place for the community. Legacy also goes further than the Park, as the influence on a whole range of landscape projects has been significant. Leading practitioners explain what they did next and the impact of the Olympics on their work.
Confirmed speakers include:
- Phil Askew of London Legacy Development Corporation
- Tom Armour of Arup
- Jennette Emery-Wallis LUC
- Andrew Harland of LDA Design
- Tim Heading of Atkins
