There’s a wide range of imaginative and inspiring art and culture installations across the Olympic Park – make sure you take in some of the sights. An impressive programme of permanent art commissions have been integrated with the high-quality British architecture, design, construction and engineering of the Olympic Park, ranging from bridges and underpasses designed by artists, to planting schemes, security fences and large-scale facades. These projects demonstrate the ingenuity and imagination that artists have brought to the look and feel of the Park. By integrating arts and culture into the Park’s public spaces, London 2012’s aim has been to achieve a unique area that will give existing local communities a sense of ownership, attract new businesses and create an area where new communities will want to live – as well as make east London a world-class visitor destination.
