Let The Games Begin…

The design of Meridian Square was tested to the max over the weekend as the London 2012 Summer Olympics began and thousands of people started arriving at Stratford Interchange.

Meridian Square with a backdrop of “The Shoal”, both designed by Studio Egret West, became part of a quite extraordinary collage greeting visitors to Stratford. The whole ensemble of sweeping steps, purposeful public space, dynamic sculpture, station canopies and giant advertising creates a meeting point which is, as the poster says, quite electrifying.
