‘The stage is set. A mellowed red structure twists towards the sky, semi-detached in flight. Around it, London dissolves in a united front. The ArcelorMittal Orbit is a looping lattice of tubular red steel peaking at the height of 115m, standing spectacularly against the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.’
The ArcelorMittal Orbit features in a 6 page spread of The Indian Architect and Builder. ‘In Defiance’ explores the concept, inspiration for and construction of the hugely successful public sculpture for the London 2012 Olympics.
