Orbit Rising – An Extrusion from the Ground
The ArchelorMittal Orbit, a giant sculpture designed by Anish Kapoor and sited right next to the London 2012 Olympic Stadium, is starting to appear from the ground, looking, at the moment, like a giant-sized playground “mesh”. I like the momentary juxtaposition of the bright yellow cranes and bright red base-struture. The Athletes’ Village is behind the Orbit in these pictures, which I took from the View Tube. The Aquatic Centre, with its bizarre high temporary seating gantries, is just off to the right.
