The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is London’s newest public space. Opened over the Easter Weekend it creates a new destination for millions. The aim of the park is to connect globally and locally and the strength of its walking and cycling connections will be key to its long-term resilience.
It’s an important year for Space Syntax, being the organisation’s 25th anniversary. This provides both an opportunity to reflect on historic events and a platform to speculate on future directions in urban planning, building design and spatial economics. We plan to do both!
