Eva Kassens-Noor is an assistant professor of urban and transport planning who has written a book, “Planning Olympic Legacies.” It features six cities that have hosted or that will soon host the Olympic Games and focuses on the legacy projects, urban-planning initiatives unveiled especially for the games yet provide the city benefits well after the Olympians have left. While London did well with this year's Olympics, Athens struggled and showed early signs of economic distress.
