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

Chaired by: Lewis Blackwell of The Building Centre and Paul Lincoln of the Landscape Institute.

Followed by Q&A and drinks reception.

This is the first in a series of events that illustrate and expand on the themes of Rethinking the Urban Landscape, an exhibition curated by The Building Centre and the Landscape Institute. Each event asks a question that addresses future learning and thinking for the design profession. Speakers include landscape architects, policymakers, community activists and industry leaders.

Cost: £8.50 per person
