If you were to try and capture the essence of London in 2012, what would it be? That Olympic neon pink, the new routemaster bus, the cable car, the Jubilee boat pageant or that disappointing Shard laser show? We’re putting together a hypothetical time capsule of all the many things that sum up this moment and we want your suggestions. What would future generations make of us queuing for no-reservation restaurants or setting up countless pop-up shops? Would they be impressed by the amount of new burger joints opening or wish they had been there to see Usain Bolt run at the Olympics? With London’s cultural scene constantly evolving, it can be easy to forget the key moments and trends. Plus, with the Games nearly over, now seems like a good time to take stock and see what’s happened so far this year.
