Following the huge success of the 2012 Olympic Games, the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and surrounding areas now continue to grow as one of London’s newest neighbourhoods, adapting the sustainable legacy of the park's buildings and transport links to meet future needs.

Starting with the Olympic Stadium by HOK and its neighbouring Aquatics Centre by Zaha Hadid Architects, we discover the site of Olympicopolis - a multicultural and academic cultural centre in the east being designed by Allies and Morrison and O'Donnell and Toumey. Tracing the meanders of the River Lea tributaries that criss-cross the park, we see Hackney's thriving Copper Box by Make Architects and Populous and the transformed 2012 press and media hubs now Here East by Hawkins/Brown Architects. Hopkins Architects’ RIBA award-wining Velodrome presides over a two-wheeler zone, while over-the-bridge the bright blue Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis centres by Stanton Williams Architects define the QEOP's north boundary. Finally, our walk will discover the multi-architect designed Athletes Village complex which now thrives as East Village - also home to vital local community amenities like Chobham Academy by AHMM and the Sir Ludwig Guttmann Health Centre by Penoyre & Prasad Architects.
 
This walk starts at Stratford Station, Westfield Exit through the ticket barrier in front of EAT.
