Spectacle has been documenting the effects and legacy claims of the London Olympics on East London since before the bid was successful. This project is on-going.
We have an interest in the use of mega projects as a tool to override democratic and accountable planning practices, to grab land and to restructure cities. Particularly when "regeneration" is invoked as a primary aim of those mega projects.
On the following pages are links to video clips, photos and texts of our work in progress. To see all published videos about the Olympics, check out the archive pages.
