Jeff has overseen a team of architects working on the overlay design for 35 competition venues and over 100 non-competition venues. Working with London 2012, Jeff helped craft a design ethos by developing core design principles that ensure each of the temporary venues has been carefully designed to take advantage of iconic London landmarks, creating an authentic and memorable experience for fans around the world. Jeff believes London’s legacy will be a game changer because of the focus on creating highly functional and beautiful temporary space that celebrates London while providing the necessary revenue generation.
