New publication in British Academy Review about new media and London 2012, thinking about what we learned from Vancouver 2010. There's a head of steam building for London RE: multiple media centres. watch this space. In case you were wondering, the image is a section of the newly approved Orbit viewing tower for London 2012 Olympic Park. I was talking about another design a few months ago called 'The Cloud' and am intrigued by the idea of writing a history of architectural designs that never reached fruition. The boundaries of an Olympic Games playground might be a nice lens through which to undertake such historical work about how we imagined the future, but I wonder how many architects would release their unsuccessful plans.
