2012 London Olympics   Aquatics Centre | By Zaha Hadid

When the games of the http://london2012.com/” target=”_blank”>2012 Summer Olympics get under way in London next year, feats of athletic achievement won’t be the only things that the crowds will marvel at. The London Aquatics Centre, a massive structure that holds three pools with a 17,500 seating capacity, will likely be a spectacle unto itself. With prize-winning international architect http://zaha-hadid.com/” target=”_blank”>Zaha Hadid at the helm, the building was designed to give the appearance of water in motion. This is reflected most directly in the undulating roof, reminiscent of a giant wave that sweeps up from the ground and flows overhead, unifying the different swimming pools. Check out more images of this unique design concept after the jump. via: http://archdaily.com/161116/london-aquatics-centre-for-2012-summer-olympics-zaha-hadid-architects/” target=”_blank”>ArchDaily
