How Would You Design the Olympic Park?

You've got a budget of £10 billion. How will you spend it? 

We have provided you with a simplified site plan of the London 2012 Olympics, showing the planning boundary of the London Legacy Development Corporation, some natural and man-made obstacles, and some transport hubs.

Your challenge is to explore options for the Park, deciding where to put various buildings and infrastructure. Cost it up, justify your decisions and present your findings to an audience!
Course overview
This short workshop is a great introduction to the types of challenges faced by urban designers and planners, when thinking about urban regeneration. 

It challenges students to think about cost, community and the environment.
