BD’s quick guide to the all the venues, infrastructure and pavilions

We have taken the decision to publish this roll of honour in support of the campaign led by Peter Murray and Angela Brady to have the Olympic marketing ban overturned.

The gag, designed to protect official sponsors, prevents architects who have contributed to the magic of the Games shouting about their achievements.

A public protest against the marketing ban will be held today at the RIBA at 12 noon.

Murray and Brady persuaded culture minister Ed Vaizey to wear a T-shirt printed with the architects’ names at an official UKTI international business summit this week. But so far their tireless lobbying of ministers and Olympics officials has provoked the government into promising to try and lift the ban “before the end of the year”.

Brady said this was not good enough and accused the government of lacking the vision to see the “best opportunity on their doorstep, to showcase all those involved in the creation of the best Olympics to date”.

BD hopes that by publishing this roll-of-honour we will help raise the profile of every practice, from the smallest to the largest, that has made the Games an international success.

In the same spirit, we have removed the paywall from all our Olympic coverage, including Building Studies,so potential clients around the world can see for themselves the architects behind the buildings they have been admiring.

  • Well Done BD! We need as much support as we can get in this economic climate. Besides, we are all genuinely proud to be part of this great event!

  • Can't you even read Murray's t-shirt? He is promoting both architects and engineers, not just the former. He's missed one or two on his t-shirt, but that's nothing compared to your persistent unwillingness to credit key designers. To take simply the most egregious case, the Velodrome would be absolutely nothing without Expedition Engineering's concept and hard work on the roof design.

  • Hi Brian,
    We are a title for architects so that's what we've focused on. Our sister title Building should have a list of the engineers. We'd like to add all of their names to this list but collating and updating this information takes some time. If the information is provided to us we will of course add it.

  • We're architects too! David Bonnett Associates did the access consultancy for all Athletes Village plots, Chobham School and the landscaping with Vogt.
