Abstract

This book accompanies the 'Lea Valley Drift' maps commissioned by the London Legacy Development Corporation for distribution at the opening of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in 2013. It investigates the ways we interact with the city, observing the public realm and exploring our relationships with the unremarkable spaces we use and inhabit every day. The project is located in the neighbourhoods around the 2010 London Olympic site in the lower Lea Valley; a location at an important juncture in its geographic history, and a fascinating condenser of voices prioritising the past or the future.
