London Orbit, London Olympic Park, 2013, Ushida Findlay
Architectural photography of Ushida Findlay Architects extraordinary London Orbit, a showpiece structure in the middle of the London 2012 Olympic Park.

Designed in collaboration with artist Anish Kapoor and structural engineer Cecil Balmond, Ushida Findlay Architects were responsible for the architectural components, including the staircase, observation decks with impressive views over London and the Olympic park, and the entrance pavilion, next to Anish Kapoor's massive Cor-ten steel “Bell”.

The Orbit features a staircase down to ground level, intertwined with the dynamic red-painted steel structural elements.
