Whilst the stadium design is growing on me, I'm still not sold on the light towers. They look a bit tacky.

That picture is three or four weeks old. The upper tier is now complete.

The stadium will be finished more than a year ahead of the Olympics.

They weren't done by TfL but a university student. They are part of his final degree assignment.

Funnily enough, I like the diving one best of all.

It's the least obvious. Makes you think a bit. What has it got to do with diving? And then you see it.......both the upward splash and the outward displacement of water upon impact.

At least..........that's my interpretation!

Hah... apparently this final year student produces a much, much better design than the so-called "pro" at Wolff Olins who came up with that what-were-they-thinking logo..

by the way... i think this student deserves a full mark for his assignment.
