Landscape Institute hopes to inspire a generation with Olympic Park film series

The Landscape Institute has shot a series of films on the design and build of the Olympic Park in the hope it will inspire a generation.

"This follows the massive success of the Olympic Park," said the institute. "In an effort to celebrate its landscape legacy we have released the films telling the story of the design and build of the London 2012 Olympic Park."

The series is headlined by a five minute film called The Olympic Park: A landscape legacy, which brings together the core team behind the park and captures the role landscape played in the transformation of the once derelict site. 

Project sponser for parklands Professor John Hopkins, LDA Design’s Neil Mattinson, AECOM’s Tom Smith, designer Sarah Price and Arup’s Tom Armour talk about their respective roles in creating the Olympic Park and associated sites.

The series is in 10 parts and can be seen on You Tube. 

"The project teams involved created a landscape of great beauty and its legacy will be one that will provide on-going lessons in restoration, sustainability and regeneration," said institute president Sue Illman.

"This film series is about celebrating that extraordinary achievement but also about inspiring the next generation of landscape architects and making the case for future investment in parks and green infrastructure across the UK."
