Checking Out London’s 2012 Olympic Stadium


During this past week I was on a bit of a whirlwind Europe tour taking in some venue and city tours, assessments, etc..  Amsterdam, Barcelona, Regensburg, Prague and London.   A highlight of the trip was seeing the Olympic stadium in Canary Wharf-London.   A very simple yet impressive structure with 82000 seats.  As with all the Olympic venues each has some type of tower located in and around the Olympic stadium.  The “orbit” is being constructed at the Olympic Park and from what I heard on the streets it has drawn mixed reviews.  I think it looks pretty cool and is a mathematical miracle based on the unique design.   Cant wait to see it when its finished.

In comparison the Olympic Tower built in Barcelona is pretty simple yet provides a wonderful view of the city.
