New Stadium Wrap

Following the recommendation by CABE to expose the temporary elements of the stadium rather than hide them, the stadium wrap has been adjusted to expose elements of temporary nature of the stadium.

Surely the retractable roof and all the support structure for it is one of the most expensive elements of the stadium (I know it was at Telstra Dome here in Melbourne)... So, to deconstruct that, then deconstruct the ends of the stadium in order to allow two big ugly 'end zones' to be constructed... Then to rip out the front half dozen rows of seats in order to get a running track around the pitch... Then to return the venue to it's original state afterwards... It would cost a fair bit more than building the entire Olympic Stadium.

The stadium has to be up to the IOC standard which is at least 85,000 occupants (correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty confident that's the standard.) I know the UK (my heritage) can accomplish AT LEAST that. I think a redesign is in order. It's time for the UK to strut it's stuff. Right now in my opinion compared to Beijing and Athens. It just isn't cutting it for me.

The IOC benchmark is 60,000. This stadium meets IOC and IAAF requirements.

They are doing it to show people that the upper tiers are a temporary structure and the lightness of the stadium. This is the whole basis of why the stadium is the way it is.

Only the sunken lower bowl of 25,000 permanent seats will remain.

Hundreds of millions of pounds are not going to be wasted so the UK can "strut its stuff", money that would be much better spent on perminant structures.

The stadium really isnt anything speical but I see very little problem with it either, certainly nowhere near the diaster that was Atlanta in 96.

It may not be an architectural wonder on the outside, but on the inside is where it is going to come alive. It's the tightest bowl I think in an Olympic stadium which is going to create an incredible atmosphere.
