LONDON | 2012 Olympics Park Development News

Athletes' Village designs revealed for Stratford City
Updated: September 21, 2007

Public consultation starts today on Stratford City masterplan by Fletcher Priest Architects and Arup Urban Design

The first images of the £2bn Olympic Athletes’ Village development at Stratford City have been released as part of a public consultation on the scheme.

Developers Lend Lease and partners First Base and East Thames today started a public consultation on the masterplan, which will house more than 17,000 athletes and officials during the 2012 Games. The village will then be converted into a residential community of 3800 homes, of which at least 30% will be affordable housing.

The masterplan was prepared by Fletcher Priest Architects and Arup Urban Design.

Is it really true that the make of this logo is worth 400,000 pounds? I heard that most of the Londoners were angry/upset by this.

Isn't this thread redundant considering its been revealed that the designs are just mock ones, and not the real ones?

Well the person who posted this thread sure didn't. I thought they didn't look decent enough anyway! British renderings are usually a lot better than those shots

Social housing and new apartments - but these diagrams aren't anything to do with the Olympics, just a fan's impression of what could be.

Yes. Most people are more annoyed about how ugly the logo is, the price just adds salt to the wounds (being a bit dramatic here )

£400,000 is peanuts for a company to pay on a completely new brand identity these days.

I love the designs of the olympic village but the logo looks like a fat swastika designed by Picasso. (no offence to the genius ).

^why Mo spend all that time on the dynamic forms of the blocks and then plonk ugly standard columns underneath, they should themselves be as integral to the spirit of the design (and have a clear objective other than solely holding up the building in their own right).
