The Sochi example shows that winning the Olympics is not only about medals, but also about the aftermath. The Olympic Park in Stratford is a different story. What started as an Olympic venture has become "London’s single most important regeneration project for the next 25 years". This spring, the park opened to the public. 

FormRadion meets Kathryn Firth, one of the masterminds behind the enormous project.

Late modernist cityplanning has taken on a different meaning today in Stockholm, the Swedish capital that has become one of the most segregated cities in Europe. "Tensta Museum: Reports from the new Sweden", currently shown at the art gallery Tensta Konsthall, is an exhibition on cultural heritage and identity in the Million Programme suburb – a remnant from a different era, when the Swedish welfare state was built.
