Gold, John Robert | Gold, Margaret M.

This article is bilingual, in English and Spanish. The Olympics have a greater, more profound and more pervasive impact on the urban fabric of their host cities than any other sporting or cultural event. This paper is concerned with issues of memory and remembering in Olympic host cities. After a contextual introduction, it employs a case study of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the main event space for the London 2012 Summer Games, to supply insight into how to read the urban traces of Olympic memory.
