London Olympic StadiumThis project is a day-long inclusive cities symposium within Architecture Boston Expo (ABX) and a complementary 24-hour Design Challenge for design students and young practitioners focused on the design of "Olympic Boulevard." London's leadership made the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games a catalyst for creating an international model of an inclusive city across the diversity of ability, age, and culture. With Boston as the likely US candidate competing for the 2024 Olympics, London offers a precedent for delivering a legacy of cutting-edge inclusive design. Five Inclusive London design leaders will present at the symposium on November 18th to share their experience and strategies and also to serve as jurors for the 24-Hour Olympic Boulevard Design Challenge.
