London Aquatics Centre / Exterior #3

Zaha Hadid Architects, 2011. To the right can be seen the edge of one of the two "Olympics mode" supplementary seating stacks. Unfortunately these are a major compromise to the building's aesthetic. After the Games, each side will be glazed in a similar manner to the north end seen here. London Borough of Newham.

London Aquatics Centre / Interior

Zaha Hadid Architects, 2011. Ready and waiting for the 2012 Olympic Games, the swimming and diving pools with the wavy, bubbly roof. Undeniably beautiful inside, but it should be for more than GBP250M of taxpayers' money! London Borough of Newham.
