Spectacle has been documenting the effects 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 over ride 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.

Get the latest on the Olympics and feel free to join the debate.

  1. I am a student at LSE and doing a project on impact of olympics on local communities in East end
    I would need more information on the same. Some documents that can help me in the process. Please can you help me with that

  2. The Spectacle Archive has lots of relevant footage, which can be viewed online, such as interviews with the users of the Manor Gardens allotments and Olympics Campaign Against Criminalising Communities. Olympic Stories: Clays Lane, can also be purchased from our site catalogue.
    I hope this helps with your research.
