All you suggestions would be welcome. Its really just conceptual but fire away, im listening.

They remind me of Zaha Hadid's style.

Personally though, I don't think they would make very good homes for the legacy after the Games are over.

Yeap. Legacy was not really taken into account.
The concept is drawn from the New York 2012 Olympic Village at www.morphosis.net.

I do like how it opens up more green space, doesn't centre around some courtyard system and sort of "flows" across the park.

Its peanuts alright. I guess we expect them to design a better logo if its more expensive (sarcasm but I am just a bit upset of the design )

Let's just go back to the topic and forget about the logo

Aren't there any buildings proposed for the Olympic Village at all?! This is a development news section for the London Olympic Village.

The village you made is quite extraordinary, but I just really don't think it'll fit nicely into London, the curves and the ultra modernist design are too intense.

London 2012 Stratsford City Athletes' Village Design Unveiled

Athletes' Village designs revealed for Stratford City

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.

Tower looks to be atleast 40 floors. Interesting, the development looks like it will mix multiple styles together.

Generic maybe for London but I'd kill for this to be in Sydney.

It looks great and i love the eclectic mix of architectural styles.

None of the venues in that diagram above are the final designs, except for the Aquatic Centre.
