I guess if they go to removing those two temporary stand after the game....I guess it will be alright. It will end up look like version 2...but the roof make me feel claustrophobic.

@ [anyone/everyone]

No offense, but is it just me or has anyone else think the area of the Olympic Park is smaller than the one in Beijing, or even, Sydney.

Sydney 640 hectares
Beijing 680 hectares
London 306 hectares, but the probably the most signficant transformation, having the biggest impact.

But Why!

But, why does it have to be smaller and way more compact than the Olympic parks in Sydney and Beijing? Is there a reason for this (aside from financial ones). Or, do they simply lack funds?

Is that the final design for the aquatics centre?

It looks quite good - considering all the ups and downs we've had with it.

The area is surrounded by residential homes and town centres. The Olympic Park was originally run down industrial buildings and polluted waterways which ran like a scar through this part of London since Victorian times.

... and the transformation of The City, and Canary Wharf, and London Bridge Station, and Blackfriars, and Elephant and Castle...

London has been through loads of sh*t, but it always works out well in the end, and it seems the post war scars are finally fading, and London is undergoing a transformation like few other cities ever do, it's going to be 'fresh' come 2012 and the Olympics. Perhaps this is why London tends to outlast other world cities, I don't know.

Why does it need to be bigger? It doesn't.
