Winning design competition entry for a key Olympic venue.

Bid management, narrative development, copywriting

The challenge in the design competition for the temporary basketball arena – a key structure within the park for the London 2012 Olympic Games – was to demonstrate the team’s creativity within the parameters of an extremely structured bidding format. Collaboration with Wilkinson Eyre’s co-consultants was essential in ensuring this successful bid balanced creative flair with a pragmatic and cost-effective approach.

The final competition documents illustrated the design approach in detail, balanced with a thorough consideration of the contractual and financial criteria.
