London's 2012 Stadium


''The innovative new design was unveiled by London 2012, as it announced construction of the venue will start ahead of schedule.

The design features a ‘stadium bowl’ holding the 25,000 permanent seats, surrounded by 55,000 demountable seats that will taken away after the Games. An Olympic Stadium with such a large demountable element and mix of temporary and permanent seating has never been attempted before.

After the Games, it will be transformed into a 25,000 capacity Athletics stadium and will host a variety of sporting, educational, cultural and community events. It will be a sustainable and vibrant facility, attracting other businesses and investment and acting as a hub for the communities living in and around the Olympic Park.''

Great web site!

I have read about your site before and never actually visited.

I will keep coming back for more.

This is the first real image I’ve seen of London 2012 stadium and it may still be too early to tell how they will fair against the architecture of Beijing.

Looks nice. To bad it has to be covered in those ugly 2012 logos.
