Arup - public realm expertise and awards


Arup is well known for its excellent regeneration of the Olympic Park after the games and the awards that the project won.

So it is no surprise that Future Cities Forum has asked Arup Director, Tom Armour to join our public realm discussion panel at our next conference at the IET in London on 6th March 2017.

Arup transformed the South Olympic Park into one of the largest urban parks in Europe. It won the CEEQUAL 'Excellent Whole Project Award (95.8%) in 2012. Meeting sustainability targets was of paramount concern which led to the re-use of 90% of demolition material in the landscape works.

Tom states: 'As landscape architects we don't always need to make design statements, some of our best work is invisible. The profession is about delivering creative and sustainable solutions to real problems.'
