London 2012 Water Polo ArenaEdit profile
A 5,000 seat capacity venue, the Water Polo Venue sits within a unique development of architecture, infrastructure and landscape with the purpose of providing a platform for the London 2012 games and a lasting legacy for the townscape of London. This demountable venue creates an emerging form of architecture for future Olympic Games. It is made from a Kit of Parts that comes from and can return to the supply chain. It occupies a prominent site at the main gateway to the Olympic Park and, with a very limited budget, the design responds through innovations in planning, form and material whilst also complimenting key site views to and from the stadium. The Venue includes a competition pool, warm-up pool and ancillary accommodation for spectators, athletes, press and VIPs.
