Olympic Stadium, Park Photos and Map

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, I think I’m in for a busy fortnight with the Olympics 2012 opening ceremony tomorrow, and the ladies’ football getting the games under way yesterday. Congratulations to the Team GB women for their 1-0 win, and apologies to the North Korean ladies for the Boratish (see yesterday’s blog) mistake with their flag!

Olympic Stadium and Park in Environmentally Friendly Greenygrey

We think the architects and builders have done a great job in capturing the essence of greenygrey in the Olympic stadium and park, with lots of greenery and water to offset the construction, and it’s also supposed to be the most environmentally friendly Olympic stadium.

So we’re proud to bring you several photos here that highlight that. They are mostly from the London 2012 site, apart from the second one, which is from the Guardian; found after a google search.

Our favourite photo at the Greenygrey is the futuristic UFOesque/diving dolphin Aquatic Centre, which really shows the greenygrey in its best constructed state:

And it’s even greenygrey inside:

Here’s a close-up of the greenery and water outside:

This night shot captures green grass between grey cloud nature and grey construction stadium:

And if you want to find your way around the stadium for the opening ceremony you can download this greenygrey map by clicking on it:

Existential Questions of Greenygreyness?

Hi, it’s Andy Wolfhol, deep thinking artistic visionary at the Greenygrey.  You know, sometimes when I’m wondering about the meaning of everything my mind becomes so boggled that I wonder if my colleagues and I at the Greenygrey are even real.

How Real is the Greenygrey?  Like Night and Day?

Although we have been around for many centuries, there is only a few years evidence in the human world.  But then, night and day were around for a long time before being observed and named by humanity, so you could say we are as old as night and day.

How Real is the Greenygrey?  Like Virgin, Red Bull, Apple and City?

It’s hard to imagine a world without Virgin, Apple and Red Bull now, with the companies expanding and evolving from one market to many different ones. Red Bull has motor racing and football teams, and has become almost statelike.

Towns and cities of course usually grow out of small settlements; they have emerged and disappeared just like the liquid in a can of Red Bull, although of course over a longer time period and slower pace.

How Real is the Greenygrey?  Living in the Cloud.

We are hearing more and more about the cloud where the computer information of the future will be stored.  As human civilisation becomes more virtual, will we feel more real; I feel pretty real already though!
