An Olympic Plunge

London Aquatics Centre

Zaha Hadid’s London Aquatics Centre has just been completed, one year ahead of the 2012 Olympics – making it the last of the venues to be finished.

The building’s design is themed around fluid and waves – with a huge undulating roof slotted between two viewing decks. Post event, these decks will be removed and the structure will become a regular pool centre.

Costing a whopping £260m, the building’s expense has raised some eyebrows – especially as much of the structure is temporary – but nobody can deny that the architecture is second to none.
