Description

Written by an architect and the sustainability editor for the Architects Journal, London 2012 is a wide-angle look at how environmental thinking has informed all aspects of staging and planning the Olympic games—from transportation to entertainment and nowhere more than in the design of specific venues.

• Includes 250 colour images including specially commissioned photography

• Examines key Olympic structures, including the Olympic Stadium, the Velodrome, and the Aquatics Centre

• Includes the landscape plan for the Lea Valley

• Sheds light on other design elements, including lighting, product design, and graphics

• Includes key data and metrics throughout highlighting sustainability standards

A thorough, brilliantly documented look at just how sustainability standards, at the micro and macro levels, have made the 2012 games unique in Olympic history, London 2012 gives future design professionals a rich seam of knowledge to draw from—and Olympic fans, who cherish the earth's resources, something to celebrate.
