Olympic sports legacy is the focus for International Union of Architects' event

The Sports and Leisure Working Party Group of the International Union of Architects (UIA) has announced it will examine the legacies of the most recent Olympic Games – London 2012 – and most recent Commonwealth Games – Glasgow 2014 – at a seminar and site visit to be held in London on 12 and 13 June.

The venue will be the office of Space Syntax. The group will also tour the Olympic Park, visiting the Aquatics Centre, Copper Box multi-purpose arena and Velodrome (pictured), all of which are fully operational. If conditions allow, a Stadium visit will also be arranged. The London 2012 Stadium is currently undergoing changes for legacy mode.

In addition to the Legacy review and site visits, recently appointed group director Gar Holohan will give a briefing about the reorganisation and refocusing of UIA Working Party Groups.

CLAD understands that the presidents of the UIA and the International Association for Sports and Leisure Facilities (IAKS) wish to see an intensification of relations between the two organisations and this will also be discussed.

Social events will include a UIA group dinner and a reception to be hosted by UK Trade & Investment.
