london Aquatics Centre Outside

London is almost ready for 2012 Summer Olympics with London Aquatics Center launched, main venue for swimming and water polo.

It’s located in the Olympic Park at Stratford in east London and it was built by a team of architects lead by Zaha Hadid which added an unique design inspired by nature.

Construction began in 2008. It will be the ‘gateway’ to the Olympic Park, with more than two-thirds of spectators expected to enter the Olympic Park over a vast bridge that runs over the top of part of the venue. The majority of spectators will be seated in two temporary wings that will be taken down after the Olympic Games.

It will have a 50 meters competition pool, a 25 meters competition diving pool, a 50 meters warm-up pool and a ‘dry’ warm-up area for divers. The Water Polo competition will be held next to it in the temporary Water Polo Arena, with competition and warm-up pools.
