Mather & Co were responsible for the design of the exhibition – including exhibition configuration and layout, new display elements for objects, stories, and graphic content.
The exhibition, which overlooks the velodrome track at Lee Valley VeloPark, shines a light on both Paralympic and Olympic events. As well as celebrating the incredible sporting success of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the exhibition showcases the unforgettable legacy that London 2012 left behind.
The exhibition displays memorabilia from key sporting moments and legends – such as a pair of shoes and gloves worn by para-cyclist Neil Fachie MBE at the London 2012 Paralympic Games, a petal from Thomas Heatherwick’s Olympic cauldron, London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Opening Ceremony torches, London 2012 Paralympic Opening Ceremony concept models made by Jon Bausor, London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic medals, and a piece of the London 2012 running track with a Paralympic running blade.
Visitors can also get involved in an illustrative photo opportunity, where they can #PassTheBaton.
The exhibition AV and graphics weave content together using the iconic London 2012 legacy ribbon, and the Paralympic exhibition continues its UK tour as an extension of the National Paralympic Heritage Centre at Stoke Mandeville Stadium. New graphics introduce content celebrating the success of the London 2012 Paralympic Games here at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
The once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games created a dynamic new heart for east London, creating opportunities for local people and driving innovation and growth. The Games will continue to inspire generations to come, not just in London, but all over the UK.
