The Olympic stadium groundsJune 27, 2011 Blogs, Community, Exhibitions, Galleries, Photography, Websites, Your 2012
Time is ticking away before the 20 images that will make up the Your 2012 free photography exhibition go on display dealing with the impact of the construction of the Olympic Park in Stratford, East London. Come along and see it when it starts at the Museum of London Docklands on the 22nd of July 2011.
Obviously feverish action is taking place to make sure everything is ready and looking fantastic. Knowing the effort that is needed to make this exhibition take place makes myself even more impressed by the rate of progress at the Olympic site. Already the Aquatic Centre is ready as is the Velodrome and according to the latest news this month so is the mobile basketball stadium. Perhaps the most amazing achievement is the biggest, the Olympic stadium itself, as can be seen below.
Efforts are now going on the make the surrounding vicinity look equally resplendent as can be seen by the following image below.
Construction efforts have now moved on to the left of the site. (If you look carefully in the distance you can see the red brick Byrant and May building).
Further along you can see how the site is now being concreted over.
If you would like to learn more about the Olympic site than I recommend that you come along to one of the our tours called ‘Walk the Olympic Way’ that we will be offering on Wednesday July 27th from 2.30pm – 4pm.
Don’t forget to check this blog next week when I will be talking about art around the Olympic site and Stratford.
