Did you know? its lightest Stadium in Olympic history - and the top pipes or the crown, are recycled gas pipes!
It has more steel content than any other past Olympic stadium.

It is the general experience the London has an extraordinary development into 2012.It also has been observed that the rapid encase of development is not restricted OT the city but also with the village.

It's a big shame that they developed such an underwhelming stadium for a spectacle as grand as the olympics. Even countries hosting the commonwealth games, asian games, or pan american games have developed far more impressive stadiums.

It must be said, this is probably the most shameful stadium developed in modern times since the Atlanta and Barcelona olympics, and even more shameful considering we are now well into the 21st century.

Its a largely temporary stadium. London has too many as it is.

Unlike most of the games you've listed, London have considered and prioritised Legacy (what happens after the games) over the games itself. It is a sensible approach.

The stadium site is constrained on 3 sides.

This isn't a shameful stadium, its actually really well thought out and does everything it needs to do. London doesn't have to make any statement through architecture.

I have to ask: what's up with the big empty sections of the stadium?
