RIBA president Angela Brady has premiered the first version of her video to showcase the input architects and engineers had into the 2012 London Olympic games.

Featuring the designers behind the Olympic cauldron, the Basketball Arena, the Velodrome, the Coca-Cola Beatbox and the Soundforms outdoor concert venue – the eight minute film has been shown for the first time at Ecobuild.

“This film is a snapshot of the 52 interviews we recorded which we hope to feature in a 1 hour documentary to include the transformation of the Olympic Park into legacy mode to benefit the local community,” said Brady.

The film was the result of a campaign led by Brady, Peter Murray from the NLA and John Nolan from the Institute for Structural Engineers.

It will be shown at Mipim in Cannes on Tuesday, March 12 at 4.50pm on the London stand.
