London 2012 Aquatics Centre

The Aquatics Centre is a centrepiece of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and undoubtedly will be one of the greatest legacies left to London as a lasting symbol of this event, which will transform East London. The facility has been designed primarily as an iconic legacy building with all Olympic Mode add-ons as temporary elements designed to be simple, functional and as economic as possible whilst maintaining the operational requirements of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
