Aquatics Centre

The Aquatic Centre in the Olympic park, London is designed by the acclaimed architect Zaha Hadid. It is one of the permanent buildings constructed permanently for the Olympics. It lies along the gateway to the Olympics Park and over two-thirds of the visitors will walk the bridge to get in the park that is the roof of the Aquatic Centre.

The Aquatic Park has the sitting capacity of 17500 spectators and the wavy roof is 160m long 80m wide. The venue consists of 50m competition pool, a 25m competition diving pool, a 50m warm up pool and a dry warm up pool. The Water Polo Arena in the vicinity is hosting the Water Polo event.

The roof of the venue has been one of the most challenging engineering projects. The part is supported by two concrete supports on the northern ends and a supporting wall on the southern end. The 3000 ton heavy piece was lifted 1.3m upwards in a single movement. The great marvel of architecture and engineering will be the place for some of the most amazing events in the games.

These events will happen in the Aquatic Centre:
