London Olympics and the East End buildings/architecture regeneration

Posted on April 25, 2012


Following with the Olympics theme I was thinking about the construction of buildings and stadiums around London and in particular the East End of London.

I have been around East End on a regular basis recently and have been intrigued by the juxtaposition of the new/old buildings and the rich/poor areas. I was passing one particular building which was next to a busy road and has evidently been unused for a while and fairly mistreated. Judging by the land value of areas within London, i’m always surprised to find spots of unused land. Though I couldnt find any point to enter the site safely, I took shots from the road side.
