Sculpture Rises Alongside London's Olympic Park

If your clients are already chomping at the bit for next year's London Olympics, they'll probably be eager to see Anish Kapoor's new skyscraping sculpture, which is being raised next to the Olympic Park.

The New York Times reports that the tower, which will ultimately be 377 feet from top to bottom, will be the tallest sculpture in Britain, and will have a viewing platform with views of the Park. (If your clients can't get tickets to the game of their choice, they might want to climb up the sculpture to watch from a distance.)

The sculpture, which is called Orbit, is about two-thirds complete, and will have elevators to bring guests up to the viewing platform (guests can also use the 455 steps if they want some exercise).
