  1. Totally just posted on the wrong thread, ah well, here it is again... Amazing, slightly gutted that i gave into temptation but i would have found out about this idea sometime. I'm so glad they're including the national flowers in the ceremony, i remember years ago i wanted something like that to happen. I believe these flowers could possibly represent the olympic rings. Green hills, yellow daff, red rose, blue flax, and i'm pretty sure the thistle is dark enough to be the black ring as well judging by the prototype.

  3. I can visualize a small-scale cauldron that won't compete with the orbit, and Boris probably ruined the plan of a tower to the north of the stadium (The one from the planning pdf that's been around for years) ever since introducing his orbit to the park. I can't see the area above the elevator shaft on the tower as a place for the cauldron either, as Heatherwick's design won't be able to be seen properly or appreciated. The orbit may even be a distraction, as not everyone will know that Heatherwick is behind the actual design and the orbit is the next most obvious thing to house the cauldron. That being said I think the orbit would make a very interesting lighting sequence with all the twists and spirals so they might go down the 'nice and pretty' lighting route, therefore Heatherwick might add something clever to the orbit. I'm not gunna stick around on this thread for much longer now anyways as I want to be surprised. I think it's only a matter of time until proper clues and hints start to show up (Excluding the orbit).
  4. As amazing as that might look the cauldron can't obstruct people's view from the events taking place on the track and field, not to forget that it can't get in the way of the screens as well :/ I'm stooped as to where the cauldron will be. The orbit is my first guess personally.
  5. If the theme is Isles of wonder then I presume all of the UK will be included some way or another
  6. I can see Nimrod being a tearjerker if it's definitely included, but if they decide to make a contemporary twist then they'll need to be very clever to pull it off successfully! Can't believe these games are just around the corner
  7. It would stage quite an interesting firework sequence with all those loops. If this tower actually happens to be the cauldron in the end, I won't be surprised if they include the loops somehow in the lighting ceremony.
  8. Absolutley nothing is wrong with opinion, but why go out of your own way and express such a strong opinion and argue over a structure which you have only seen in pictures or incomplete with your own eyes..? No need...
  9. I wonder if they're going to make the spiral staircase reflect the colours of the Olympic flag? Seems possible
  10. Let's not forget that Boyle has only suggested that there'll be a lot of music, he hasn't pointed out that we'll see a lot of well-known music artists in the OC. Sorry I'm about to bring this up, but Beijing had a lot of music - not all by famous faces, and there was chanting (like it or not, it's musical). So let's not jump on the 'ColdSpiceBeatles 7' band-waggon just yet Generally speaking, I'm expecting urban, traditional british rock and maybe the old classic composition to add a nice contrast (e.g. The Greensleves rendition in the handover)
  11. Coldplay would be a very good choice Very uplifting songs!
  12. It looks similar to building a k'nex sculpture. I suppose it'll be easier to build it's main structure but the real work will start when adding it's 'innards', including it's viewing platform.
