One aspect of the proposed 'Olympic Games Legacy' was the creation of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park - divided into a North and South Park.
PLAYLINK was invited to be part of a bidding consortium led by the New York based James Corner Field Operations, designers of the rightly acclaimed New York High Line. The bid for the South Park was successful.
The Olympic Park project was extremely complex, comprising many moving and varying parts that needed to be in beneficial alignment with each other. Not least of the questions to be addressed were those about risk levels, in particular of the playable spaces and features.
PLAYLINK's role was to deploy its expertise, using Risk-Benefit Assessment as the vehicle both for exploring underlying values in respect of play and risk, and for assisting in the assessment of risk of particular features.
