In Woolwich, by the Arsenal, is a collection of wonderfully wacky Olympic buildings - this the only one photograph-able above the building site hoardings. For the shooting and paralympic archery events. Two others are tucked behind this edifice - one with pink 'things', the other with blue. On a cold winter's day, with the moon hanging in the sky, they're a striking testament to the creativity of contemporary architects.
The red structures are moving membranes, rubber-like, birthday balloon-like - they seem to breathe for the building. And according to the architects - they act as natural ventilation and allow light into the building. Nice for the shooters and archers, and spectators.
A side-on view of the latest London Olympic venue to near completion. PVC membrane encloses the shooting and paralympic archery venue and the rubber membranes provide natural light and ventilation.
