  1. Please correct me. Is the living / residential zone for the Olympic Village planned on an island. Will it present similar security threats to the concerns around the NY and Tokyo Olympic Village or is this a completely different scenario?
  2. If nobody in Europe wants it....send it elsewhere.
  3. Glad to see this bid come together but one would imagine that masterplan of the Olympic Park site would need revisions. The BOH/FOH setup as an example. Would it be possible to swop the OV site with the Aquatic Centre island (even if it does seem smaller)? Is it wise to combine the 3 major venues with the OV and other services on two islands with what seems to be moderate access?

  10. Rectangular floodlights. Rectangular torch opening.

So what you need to overlay is , the following, but not limited to; 1. The planned, existing, and additional transport infrastructure 2. The risk of each of these infrastructures 3. The development zones of the city 4. The capacity of venues and peak demand in relati
