Summary:This guide describes the buildings created for the London 2012 Games,
including both permanent and temporary structures built for the
Olympic Park and venues across the city. Two of Britain's most
incisive and entertaining writers on contemporary architecture and
design, Tom Dyckhoff and Claire Barrett, examine what's been built,
who designed the work and how it is set to transform London itself.
Considering the human as well as the architectural stories behind the
designs, they also look at how the programme for the 2012 Games has
pioneered a new level of sustainability and explore the lasting
legacy of London 2012.
