Completed: 2012

Architect: Ushida Finlay Architects
Designers: Aneesh Kapoor and Cecil Balmond of Arup group
Engineers: Arup
Developer: ArcelorMittal and Londond Development Agency

Commissioned for the London 2012 Olypics as a sculptural tower offering views of the entire Olympics venue. It is 115 metres high (377 feet) and was designed by Aneesh Kapoor and Cecil Balmond of the Arup engineering group. It is essentially comprised of a central core spire that is wrapped with seemingly-arbitrary latticed truss system painted bright red. It serves as a juxtaposition between stability and instability, and to provide an iconic monument dedicated to the Olympics event.
