Czech Republic House: London Olympics The Czech Olympic Committee have chosen the Business Design Centre as their Olympic house for this summer's Games. The Islington exhibition centre hosts hundreds of events every year and will feature a remarkable installation by the main entrance, designed by avant-garde Czech artist David Cerny. Formerly known as the Royal Agricultural Hall, the building was rescued and restored in the 1980s and now attracts over half a million visitors every year, so should be a great place for the Czech committee to attract a little public interest. Czech Republic House will host political, business events alongside public cultural and sporting functions. Hoping to promote Czech culture and develop their trade and tourism boards, there will be lots of media and commercial events, plus daily attractions and exhibitions. It has also been rumoured that the Czech Republic committee have signed up Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech, Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky and even superstar sprinter Usain Bolt himself to make special appearances at the North London Business Design Centre. Live coverage of the Olympic Games will take place on screen with a total area of 280 metres squared, with a single screen measuring 175 metres squared. There will also be live music from English singing Czech bands, Czech specialities in the restaurant, Pilsner beer on tap in the bars and even a daily Czech/English newspaper.
