Nanjing will emulate London's use of temporary buildings and its frugality when the East China city hosts the Summer Youth Olympic Games in 2014, according to the city's top officials and the event's organizing committee.

Yang Weize, Party chief of Nanjing and executive president of the games' organizing committee, said the city will watch its spending when it constructs new competition and training venues.

The announcement comes as some residents are saying they believe the city is spending too much to prepare for the event.
