DESCRIPTION
The 2012 Olympic Games will be held in East London’s Lower Lea Valley. The site for the Olympic park is currently occupied by businesses who will be encouraged to relocate to the Cross River Park area. Many of these businesses operate over 24 hours, such as print workshops or internally, such as foreign food importers. Therre are also plans to build a new community for 26,000 people in Barking Riverside. These new homes will be linked to the site by an extension to the Docklands Light Railway.

RESEARCH AGENDA
How will the displaced businesses relate to each other and what special conditions will they create?
How will the planned infrastructure influence the site at alocal level?
Can the 24 hour operations and the international operations create mutual benefits?
