The London Olympic Stadium


Recommended Posts

Excellent. I'm sure whoever's sponsoring this will want to get the good publicity sooner rather than later, so I'm sure we'll be getting some good renders appearing in the not too distant future.

Let's keep the fan fares to the ticketing thread. We'll have only fanfares here.

I still think you guys are expecting too much too soon. Again from the Sydney experience, at this time before the games (three months) there was no decorations up - the banners and look around the cit

Not steep enough to appreciate the intricate patterns that the Ceremonies choreographers might have in store.

Oh Rob - like your style - lol!!

Yeah will be good to renders - am sure they will revert to the original plan by the female artist - can't think of her name! I guess the company bankrolling it will be able to advertise the fact up to the olympics and receive a hefty chunk of Olympic tickets for their clients and employees!

I hope so, but why so sure?

I guess that they must have been so far down the line with the original plans - surely the original plan links-in with the coloured glass on the stairwells in the internal finishings? Also it wouldn't be cost effective to start from scratch?

Where did you find the second image Davey?

They are both on the squint opera website in the stills section. They do all the London 2012 videos/animantions and they are both there. Ive never seen the one with the plain track before and Ive been on that site a few times, so thats what worries me, it makes me think its the most recent render.

In another find though, Westfield have added a section on areas people can rent during the games, broadcasters etc. In all their renders the stadium is wrapped in the rainbow effect and looks good, so do they know something we don't or is it just to make the renders pretty.

The views look fab though and Sky have rented the space havent they. The BBC must be fuming!!!!!

I seem to remember a time when the rainbow affect was created by coloured lights that could then change and create patterns at will. There was a video, I think of it, and it looks incredible. Is that still the plan or has it been droppen in favour of the simple fabric wrap?

Just to clarify, it was light shown on the white fabric wrap that created the affect, and now I'm wondering if they've changed it so that the wrap itself is painted like a rainbow.

Can't wait to see the finishing touches on the stadium.

BTW, I showed my 6 year old nephew the mascot videos, and he loved them. He wanted to watch it again the next day. It was a nice introduction to him about the Olympics.

Bought my 3yr old son a 'Wenlock' mascot. At the time he was 'reading / being read' an alien story book. Wenlock has become 'ugly bugly alien' - and my son adores him !
