Architect Phil Askewwill present the reconversion project of the Olympic Park in London, at the moment the most complex site of urban regeneration in Europe, next week, in Bucharest. The project will be presented on June 3rd within LAUD 2014, the first event taking place in Romania dedicated to landscape architecture and urban design, organized by Abplus Events and the Order of the Architects of Romania, at Athenee Palace Hilton.
LAUD 2014 is a unique opportunity to find out, from the author of the project himself, how the Olympic Park in London is being transformed into the largest new urban park built in the UK for over a century, The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, an example of the immense potential of the public space to change the destiny of an area and of its inhabitants.
The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park has been built by The London Legacy Development Corporation in such a way as to be reused by the local community, which will thus benefit from all the facilities created for the organization of the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2012. In the near future, the former Olympic Park will become one of the most sought after residential and event areas in London.
Join us on June 3rd at LAUD 2014 – interview opportunities with architect Phil Askew.
Since 2008 Dr. Phil Askew has led the process of designing and delivering the London Olympic Park and currently leads the post games transformation of the Park into the most ambitious project of urban regeneration of East London.
