Olympic Marketing Protest T-shirt by Peter Murray at Dezeen Super Store

The controversial T-shirt worn by New London Architecture chair Peter Murray in protest of marketing rules that prevent the architects of Olympic venues from promoting their work is now available at Dezeen Super Store.

The T-shirt lists the names of architects and engineers who worked on the games but can't publicise the fact due to a marketing agreement with London 2012 organisers.

The campaign Murray started at a Creative Industries Summit in London gained pace when the RIBA posed in the shirts in front of a banner that was hung in front of its headquarters and printed with the names (below).

    So I assume Heatherwick’s name is not on there since he was given a lot of publicity for the cauldron. Or do the Olympic organizers not consider this as an architectural work?
