Growing a new piece of city: Designing a legacy for 21st-century London

17th November 2009

The 2012 Olympics is profoundly altering the landscape of East London and will leave a significant urban design legacy for many years. The transformation of post-industrial spaces in London raises important questions about place, memory and public culture. This panel event explored these themes from a variety of perspectives and opened up debate about the future of London.

The panel speakers (biographies) were:

  • Lara Almarcegui, artist (did not attend due to ill health)
  • Eleanor Fawcett (London Development Agency)
  • Andrew Harland (LDA Design)
  • Tony Lloyd-Jones (University of Westminster)
  • Jason Prior (EDAW)
  • Iain Sinclair, writer

Chair: Professor Matthew Gandy (UCL Urban Laboratory)

Sponsored by the ODA, Urban Lab and UCL's Grand Challenge of Sustainable Cities.
