Video: Structure Being Called ‘London’s ‘Eiffel Tower’ to Be Built for 2012 Olympic Games


It's being called London's Eiffel Tower, it's designed by Anish Kapoor, and it's going to be built for the 2012 Olympics. If only they'd build a version with a roller coaster attached.

BBC: "The 115m tall piece, named the ArcelorMittal Orbit, will be placed in the Olympic Park and will be 22m higher than New York's Statue of Liberty. The £19.1m design incorporates the five Olympic rings and will offer visitors panoramic views of London. London Mayor Boris Johnson revealed plans for the tower on Wednesday."
