London 2012 Water Polo Arena
Not only does the venue work superbly but it has real soul and personality.”
A 5,000 seat capacity venue, the Water Polo Arena sat within a unique development of architecture, infrastructure and landscape with the purpose of providing a platform for the London 2012 games and a lasting legacy for the townscape of London. This demountable venue created an emerging form of architecture for future Olympic Games. It was made from a Kit of Parts that came from and was returned to the supply chain. It occupied a prominent site at the main gateway to the Olympic Park and, with a very limited budget, the design responded through innovations in planning, form and material whilst also complimenting key site views to and from the stadium. The venue included a competition pool, warm-up pool and ancillary accommodation for spectators, athletes, press and VIPs.
