Although.. I do like the way it's being incorporated into London's bid. Admitedly it would be better if it wasn't owned by a German company, but hey, we can't have everything. Did you har about it being renamed "tho O2 bubble"? Yeah, the scale of the new Wembley is simply awesome. And the arch is absolutely humongous, it looks spectacular as part of London's skyline, especially when lit up at night.
The wonders of CGI eh? It's interesting that the first video shows the stadium with an athletics track. I thought that was what there was all the hoo ha about when it was being commissioned: after the government cut all funding, the F.A. decided to get rid of the athletics track because they were having to fund it themselves and didn't want the extra expense of an athletics track. Strange. Still it's going to be an amazing stadium. And the fact that it's going to be finished before schedule and on budget should lay to rest the IOC's fears of London's track record with these sorts of projects (need I mention the dome?).
Don't know whether you guys have checked it out but at the Foster and Partners (the designers of the new Wembley) website there are some really cool little videos. One basically animates the stadium, really bringing it to life and gives a really good sense of what the atmosphere would be like. The other superimposes the new stadium over the old one, the old stadium was big, the new one is huge! http://www.fosterandpartners.com/InternetS...tml/simple.html It's under Projects>>Alphabetical>>Wembley
