Each video is about an hour long and captures the innovation and best practice that were developed by landscape professionals during the Olympics.

The latest videos to be added are interviews with Tom Armour of Arup who talks about the new role of landscape engineer, with Kym Jones of Applied Landscape Design who worked on the Athletes’ Village, with planting specialist James Hitchmough and Nigel Dunnett from the University of Sheffield, and with Peter Shepherd from BSG Ecology.

These interviews have been developed by the LI’s Olympic Learning Legacy Working Group to facilitate the sharing of the lessons learnt by practitioners on site so that all members can benefit from their experiences. The interviews can also be accessed by members of the public interested in finding out more about the vital role Landscape Architects played in these games.

All eight of the videos can be seen on the Landscape Institute’s YouTube Channel.
