The six were due to give presentations yesterday to a committee headed by Barbara Cassani, who is leading London's bid for the Olympics.
The committee includes the London Development Agency and Josep Acebillo, who played a major role in the planning of the 1992 Barcelona games.
The plans will present a strategy to transform a 150 ha site stretching from the Royal Docks by the Thames to the Lea Valley.
The architects have been asked to present a masterplan both for a successful and an unsuccessful bid.
Proposals for a successful bid will include locations for Olympic venues such as the main stadium and the Olympic village.
The LDA has developed a 15-year regeneration programme for the Lea Valley and has emphasised that any Olympic scheme will be co-ordinated with that.
The final masterplan is due by November before London's submission to the International Olympic Committee in January.
