Stratford - London

The ArcelorMittal Orbit.

This is tallest sculpture in the UK at 114m high - but if it were a vertical tower (with all the loops flattened out) it would be 560 meters, higher than the Eiffel tower.

The design was the winning entry in a competition to design and produce a sculpture that would be an iconic centre-piece for Queen Elisabeth Olympic Park and act as an accessible work of public art.

The Olympic Stadium - Queen Elisabeth Olympic Park.

From 2016, the Stadium becomes the new home of West Ham United FC and the National Competition Centre for athletics in the UK, as well as a major live music venue. 

London Aquatics Centre.

In 2012, the spectacular London Aquatics Centre, designed by architect Zaha Hadid, provided the breathtaking backdrop to countless world records.
