The second day of three in the Edge - Situated Practice in Art, Architecture and Urbanism series is hosted at Here East on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, close to Hackney Wick and Stratford.

Investment for the 2012 Olympic Games brought rapid development to the previously neglected Stratford area. Here East, within the former press and broadcasting centre of the Games, is envisaged as a cluster of innovators and digital makers, whilst the Stratford Waterside development will bring new institutions including the V&A, Sadler's Wells, London College of Fashion, and UCL. Speakers will look at the challenges of creative place-making from the perspective of architecture, urbanism and planning; some contributions will be 'performed' rather than spoken.

Keynote presentations on this day will be delivered by Jill Magid and Do Ho Suh.
