Q.702



This is not only an observation tower, but also a work of sculptural art. Designed by the artist Anish Kapoor and the designer-architect Cecil Balmond, and located in the Olympic Park, London, the "Orbit" was shown to the world in May 2012, in time for the London Olympics. Apparently the biggest piece of public art in Britain, it was also considered as a possible destination for the Olympic flame.
