I just thought I'd share a rendering of my version of the stadium.
I came across this thread when I was doing my research so I thought you may be interested.

Probably a night time rendering to come.

Cheers

great work!

BUILDING WORKS STARTS A MONTH EARLY

Building work has started more than a month early on the foundations of the International Broadcast Centre for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

This means construction is now underway on all five of the main structures at the Olympic Park.

Work has started sinking 2,100 concrete piles up to 24m into the ground to form the foundations of the IBC and Main Press Centre for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games which will create just under 900,000 sq ft of business space in legacy.

The IBC/MPC will support around 20,000 broadcasters, photographers and journalists communicating the Games to an audience of four billion people worldwide.

This summer work will start on the steel frame of the IBC, which is 275m long, 104m wide, 21m tall and big enough to house five jumbo jets.

Over 4,500 tonnes of steel with trusses up to 24m long are being produced and fabricated for the IBC in Dalton, North Yorkshire.

Work is also underway on the media transport mall and the foundations of the MPC are due to start this month.

Olympic Delivery Authority chief executive David Higgins said: “The ‘big build’ is right on track as we make steady progress on the venues and infrastructure needed both for the London 2012 Games and the regeneration of this part of east London.”

That's a lot of road haulage to bring 4500 tons of steel from North Yorkshire!

To the outside world people will compare with the past, however
the last games was the last of that type of games.

London 2012 is different from the previous games, its more compact
and the idea of not having large buildings that are left empty after
the games (IOC now wants this) and due to cost.

biggest issue for a democracy is that the people of the UK dont want
to see grandiose buildings built for 2 weeks of sport!

Also any building must pay for its self after the games.

So there is an element of temporary and keeping the costs down
so the Architecture will reflect this.

Olympic stadium is very diffrent from the previous host stadium
because its role is totally diffrent and reflects needs of the UK
as the next host.

.
I understand the fact that IOC doesnt want large buildings left empty after the games. Its is OK and acceptable. But London could have much better designs for the temporary stadiums, especially for the main olympic stadium, which is a kind of symbol for every games. Temporary architecture doesn't mean indispensably "ugly" or "indifferent". But in case of London 2012, temporary means indifferent. London had promissed a spectacular temporary olympic stadium in the past, which was replaced later by a totally indifferent design.

The swimming pool will be the crown in this park, I believe. Its a superb design (especially in post-game mode) and the geography and landscaping of this game is really organic and literally park-like. Some of the proposed stuff is unfortunately worse than what you'd find on an old industrial park - better looking factory units than that media centre - really unfortunate. Lets just hope they do a superb job of planning the ceremonies and games themselves, eh?

magnificent architecture!
the velodrome is an absolute gem, and so is the aquatic centre.

not so sure about the handball and basketball venues and the main stadium.

apart from that there is wembley, wimbledon, the dome....london has its icons.

The aquatic centre, velodrome and other new architectural gems are a bonus!

Before you book, just remember the Wimbledon Championship starts in mid June whilst the games run from late July-mid August.

Nice to see the Olympic Park progressing so speedily, I'm not sure even Beijing was this progressed at this stage for their games (certainly know Athens wasn't!).

Are you living on planet earth my friend? do you have any concept of what london is about? Not only is the city building some amazing venues but remember it already has world renowned venues in place... Ask any cricket fan about Lords particularly from the sub continent and they will tell you... ask any tennis fan about wimbledon... ask any football fan anywhere in the world about wembley...the list goes on and on.
We are talking about hundreds of years of sporting history at these venues..with some of the greatest moments in sport having happened here. Please remember the olympics are not just about the main stadium or office blocks for journalists or about tower blocks for athletes they are about passion and winning!
