The Olympic Park

A tour of the Olympic Park. Construction on an epic scale. The velodrome currently resembles a scalextric set and Zaha's Aquatic Centre is all but a steel frame without its creamy white curves.
(Many)statistics of sustainability from the Olympic Delivery guide.
One for a Friday afternoon. Over 50% of all construction materials are being brought to the site via the canal or by train.
