The Legacy Now Youth Panel is a dedicated group of young people aged 14-19 from the five Olympic host boroughs who are engaged in the Olympic Legacy planning process. The panel has been convened by Fundamental, an organisation that is leading the field in youth engagement in architecture and the built environment.
In July 2009 The Light Surgeons helped to create a special event for the launch of the their manifesto. In collaboration with Fundamental and the members of the panel we created a giant animated 3D architectural model, based on the Olympic legacy master Plan, as the center piece for their event at Ocean in Hackney East London. The installation’s content was informed through a series of workshops and the event brought together a range of young people from across the host boroughs to interact and learn about the London Development Agencies plans for the post Olympic site.
Fundamental is funded by the London Development Agency in partnership with the Five Host Boroughs
