When Stratford hosted the 2012 Olympics it gained the attention of the world. The post-industrial town was reborn as a 21st century commercial centre. Ten years on, this contemplative project asks us to look again at the social changes that occur in the wake of regeneration. Tony Mak documents the disquiet of empty shopping centres and the emerging beauty of its green spaces with the detached eye of a newcomer. Featuring an introduction that explores the history and communities of pre-regeneration Stratford, this book portrays an attempt to find the soul of this new and changing community.
