ARCLIB Spring Vist 21st April 2015 to Queen Elizabeth II Olympic Park
On a sunny day seventeen ARCLIB members visited the ArcelorMittal Orbit by Sir Anish Kapoor and Cecil Balmond. A 114.5 metres tall sculpture made from recycled steel, part of the tour of Art in the Park. We also visited the serene Aquatics Centre, Ken Shuttleworth’s Copper Box Arena, Lee Valley Velopark and a view of the main stadium being converted for the West Ham football club. We also had a treat with an excellent Blue Badge guided tour by Simon with prospective sites for Olympicopolis and coach ride around the park and surrounding East London down to Royal Docks.
Thanks to Carla Marchesan for her photograph. The poem is printed on the wooden construction which masks some kind of electrical box and carries a “Danger of Death” sign alongside the poem which we found amusing.
