Creating Concepts


The London 2012 Olympic Park successfully hosted the London 2012 Olympic Games. The park contains a network and zoned sound system covering all public areas. The system has provided soundscaping, background music and pre-recorded and live messages into areas of the park. It has facilitated the Opening Ceremony and 250,000 visitors daily during the games. Members of the Recursive team provided design, coordination, specification, installation management and commissioning of the system with all relative stakeholders.
