After Colchester we stopped in at the Olympic Park in London.

The distinctive Aquatics centre was designed by Zaha Hadid, who is well known here in Japan for having designed the new olympic stadium but then having the design rejected.

There are some design similarities between the two projects, and I have no idea what the general opinion is but I quite like it. I also liked her Tokyo proposal.

In general I like architecture that utilizes curves. I would have liked to go inside but we were short of time.
