The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is the largest new urban park built in this country for over a century. As the centrepiece for the London 2012 Olympic Games, it became one of the stars of the event and demonstrated a new approach to urban parks. Following the Games, it is now being transformed into a new public park for London and will become the centrepiece for a large scale and ambitious regeneration of East London. The lecture will describe the design drivers and delivery process, setting out why this is important for Landscape Architecture.

Dr Philip Askew is a Landscape Architect, Urban Designer and Horticulturalist. Since 2008 he has worked on the Olympic Park, originally at the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) leading the delivery of the 2012 Olympic Park and now at the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) leading the Transformation of the Olympic Park into the largest new urban park in the UK for over a century.
