Last Summer, I finally visited the London Olympic Park (Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park) and it was a really delightful designed public realm with landmark architecture nestled within.
In particular, the controversial viewing platform by Anish Kapoor, to be turned into a slide. The Aquatics Centre, Velodrome and the Olympic Stadium remain as legacy sports grounds available for public use.
But it is really the public realm that stands out, with pedestrians and cyclists accomodated for, riverside walks and wildflower meadows interspersed across the park in a varied and dynamic way, becoming an iconic precedent for many future landscapes and public realm projects.
