LONDON 2012

Stratford, London

Allies and Morrison was jointly responsible for assessing the regeneration potential of the Lower Lea Valley and contributed to London’s successful bid to host the 2012 Games. The practice subsequently became a part of a multi-disciplinary team appointed by the Olympic Delivery Authority to deliver masterplans for the Olympic and Paralympic Games, and for the Post-Games Transformation of the site in 2013, creating a new park for London. We are also the design architects for new structures, bridges and highways in the park.

Allies and Morrison lead the design overlay of the public areas of the Olympic Park for use during the Games as well as a number of other key historic London venues of the Olympic Games (LOCOG), as part of Team Populous.

In 2008 we were appointed by the LDA to jointly lead the masterplan for permanent Legacy development and are now working on this with the Olympic Park Legacy Company.

Our role on the site continues today as lead designers of a major component of the planned Cultural and Education District at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The project has brought together a number of institutions to create permanent homes along a revitalised the Stratford Waterfront. A team lead by Allies and Morrison was appointed by the London Legacy Development Corporation to take the project forward following an open competition in 2014 with anticipated completion due by 2022.
