The Olympics Drawn: London 2012 tells the story of the conception, production and implementation of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, through the medium of drawing.

Showcasing drawings made by a variety of designers, practitioners and professionals who contributed to all aspects of delivery of the Games, the exhibition presents a truly multi-disciplinary collection of images. Thematic issues of place, performance, movement and iconicity feature alongside material exploring how the Games were planned; how the built environment was transformed; and how the Ceremonies were orchestrated.

The exhibition demonstrates the scope and scale of the events, from the enormous tasks of predicting crowd movements and organising athletes’ facilities, through to the design of Mary Poppins’ costume in the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games.

With sincere thanks to Deirdre Hopkins and the Rootstein Hopkins Foundation.
