ArcelorMittal Orbit by Anish Kapoor

Anish Kapoor has designed another sculpture for the London 2012 Olympic games which will be in the Olympic Park. It will become the UK's largest sculpture at 115m high... Not only is it for appearances sake, it has an observation deck at the top, which will provide stunning views. To access the deck, there will be a lift as well as a spiral staircase.

I think the idea and the design are fab, and it looks stunning- reminds me a bit of a trumpet (not sure if that is deliberate), but the colour and lattice work is striking and really imposing... Let's hope the modern feel of this will be matched by the nearby architecture...
