About Lee Valley Leisure
In Lee Valley Leisure, Robinson focuses on a place that is currently being envisaged in the future. Moreover, as a utopian dream. The Olympic bid is currently surrounded with much anticipation. It will be announced July 2005. People see its potential regeneration as a panacea for all the social ills that have historically faced the area. However, this also presupposes that the land currently has no purpose and is not used. And this is far from the truth, as is revealed in Robinson's works.
