Sure, the London Olympics are practically ancient history by now, dozens of news cycles back. But did you hear a word about the landscape created for the Games and now enjoyed by Londoners? Me neither.
But according to the Evening Standard: “The real star of the Olympic site is the landscape design. It’s simply beautiful, with borders packed with mixed wildflowers, all blooming gaily thanks to the wet weather. Its hillocks and valleys, ordered by the waterways that run north–south through the park, make it a unique place, and give a flavour of what will be a wonderful public space after the Games.”
The 250 acres of wonderful space include “sculptural tectonic forms,” wetlands, and a “species-rich” meadow.
