Boris's "Legacy planners play it safe and snub science." (Now, where's there another site?)


Link to Evening Standard

"Pictured is Wellcome Trust’s planned new home for 7000 scientists on the Olympic Park. The £14 billion charity had Fred Pilbrow, then of PLP Architects, draw up plans to rebuild the 900-foot-long tin shed, turning it into what was to be the London Life Sciences Centre.

"Wellcome made the bid to take over and manage the entire Olympic Park and athlete’s village, and turn the whole place into a huge science park. This was thought to be a particularly silly idea by the Olympic Park Legacy Company."
