London Olympics International Broadcast Centre / Main Press CentreThe colourful IBC/MPC will be the home of around 20,000 broadcasters, photographers and journalists during the Olympics and Paralympics, bringing the Games to an estimated four billion people worldwide. Located in the north-west corner of the Olympic Park beside the Hockey facilities, the IBC/MPC will be a 24-hour media hub complete with a catering village serving 50,000 meals per day and a High Street-style shopping area - complete with banks, travel agents, newsagents and a post office - which links the two zones together. Completed in July 2011, the innovatively designed four-storey MPC features state-of-the-art utilities and will be taken on as office space following the Games. The Press Centre is doing its part for the environment too: its "brown roof" is made out of woods and seeds recycled from the developing parkland habitat around it.
