Greening the Olympics
The defining aspect of Sydney's proposal to host the 2000 Olympic games was the emphasis on 'clean and green". As the Olympic clock counted down the 15th of September 2000, the enormity of the task before the planners of this huge event became apparent. Instead of erecting the facility on a pristine site, the organisers opted to rehabilitate the Homebush site, an area that had been used as a military armaments depot, abattoir and chemical dump. The fascinating story, narrated by Mary Moody, unfolds as we see the early construction begin through to the Games themselves. Here is an Olympic site built in a manner that may become a blueprint of environmentally responsible planning for the new millennium.
