* Architecture: London Aquatics Centre for 2012 Summer Olympics by Zaha Hadid Architects

Posted by the editors on Thursday, 16 February 2012

Architecture: London Aquatics Centre for 2012 Summer Olympics by Zaha Hadid Architects: “..The architectural concept of the London Aquatic Centre is inspired by the fluid geometries of water in motion, creating spaces and a surrounding environment that reflect the riverside landscapes of the Olympic Park.  An undulating roof sweeps up from the ground as a wave – enclosing the pools of the Centre with a unifying gesture of fluidity, while also describing the volume of the swimming and diving pools.  The Aquatics Centre is designed with an inherent flexibility to accommodate 17,500 spectators for the London 2012 Games in ‘Olympic’ mode while also providing the optimum spectator capacity of 2000 for use in ‘Legacy’ mode after the Games..”  Modulable, impressive..
