“It doesn’t cost much to dream. Joanna goes to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford every day. The old site of London 2012 Games is less than ten minutes from her home. During her walks with her daughter, this single mother imagines living in one of the luxury buildings overlooking this 226 ha space. Crossed by canals where swan-shaped pedal boats float, with playgrounds for children, a gym as big as a factory. A new town. Here, the streets are called Celebration Alley or Victory Road.
