ArcelorMittal Orbit

It will be rather clunkily, but correctly christened the ArcelorMittal Orbit. The winning design for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic sculpture, its conceived by Turner Prize winning artist, Anish Kapoor.

The new icon will stand on the Olympic site in East London, and probably be the first landmark you can identify from the plane if you’re flying in from the east after 2012.

Another attempt? Well yes. Attempting to figure out another sustainable model (there are some other attempts going on parallel-ly).
