Stunning! Those lights are so powerful.

Now imagine the rainbow lights peering out from the wrap banners, lit up multicolored pods, and thousands of people walking around it.

Wow

This stadium looks like it was under construction, is neither beautiful nor does it appear to the Olympic stadium, it's just wasted money

Of the construction stadium was a skyscraper being built it eould have just 'topped out.' Everything structural is finished, any job that needs completed is merey aesthetic.

I do not know if you realise, but a triangular wrap is (almost 100%) going to be installed later this year, which will cover up the stairwells, and the internal support struts which should not be seen! The wrap will be essential to the overall look of the stadium to outsiders, but when people see the multicoloured lights at night they will love it!

Obviously the track and surroundings will be getting put in later this year, and the inside seating bowl is comparable to the top stadiums in the world! A steep upper tier should create a good party atmosphere as well as good views for fans during the games.

The scoreboard/videoscreens will be installed between tiers at either end of the stadium.

And Olympic branding will cover the stadium to give it a unique 2012 feel. They'll cover the bare concrete between tiers with 2012 logos and colour, wrap flags around the edge of the roof.



So plenty to do, and when it's finished it will look great, and understated - but it doesn't matter - London is made, it's a global icon and doesn't need to show off to the world - same as Paris if they had won and used the Stad de France.

Wow thanx for that R K Teck, really loving the feel of it, almost like a carnival feel and the flags look great. The thing im looking forward to most is the installation of the 'Halo'-like light ring suspended above the centre of the staduim since i belive that will become quite a sight especially if the lines holding it up are hard to see

Scotland will finally have seceded from the UK by the time of the Olympics, I see. Yet the saltire will still be an integral part of the Union flag.

Edit: I see that England will also have seceded from the UK!

Just Wales and Northern Ireland, then.........unless Ulster will finally have been reunited with the remainder of Ireland!

I have to say, the glass on the stairs looks fantastic.

I think it looks brilliant.

The straight lines and weird shape of the floodlights pylons, along with the jagged seat design, really set it off. It's relatively basic design is a refreshing change from all the curve-infested stadiums that have sprung up everywhere since the turn of the Millennium.

Well done London 2012.

It looks much better than the glutted stadium in Beijing. This stadium has been kept simple and I like that.

Is it like your thing to constantly comment on British weather on this forum? seriously, it's getting pretty embarrassing now, so leave it out.

On the other hand some great photos. The inside of the stadium is going to look great

it' was just a remark you know! You had the possibility to answer me in a pacific way but you search for battle word everytime

For example in the processus of redeployement of west ham in Statford you could give infos about the restructuration of roof etc...

If you are not able to be objective and take distance from your hate mood i can do nothing guy

but that just shows you were looking for an argument if u knew the roof was going to be extended when West Ham take it over. Please stop trying to cause an argument, though to be fair i dont think your as bad as you used to be. Its all really petty just end it please.

and p.s loads of people go to Wimbeldon to watch tennis on some courts that are not covered , its about the sport, not getting a tad wet.
