NLA, The Building Centre, 26 Store Street, London WC1E 7BT

With the London Olympics now 4 years behind us, the Rio Olympics fast approaching, and plans well underway for the Tokyo Olympics, we examine the legacy of these projects and discuss the potential of the Olympics for unlocking major regeneration within global cities.

How successful has the London Olympics been in driving regeneration in East London? What lessons can we take from this to help Rio in their post-Olympic planning, and Tokyo in their Olympic planning?

Jason Prior, the man behind the masterplan for both London and Rio, will be joined by a panel of experts in this free NLA breakfast talk, taking place just a week before the Rio Opening Ceremony.
