Arcelormittal Orbit tower and stadium floodlights
Arcelormittal Orbit tower and stadium floodlights
View from inside the stadium showing the top loop of the Orbit and one of the triangular towers of floodlights. The Orbit is a 377 foot high sculpture designed by Anish Kapoor and Cecil Balmond. There are 532 floodlights in 14 towers, giving enough light for high definition television - and digital cameras. Also visible are some of the wires across the stadium, used for TV cameras, and for flying performers during the opening and closing ceremonies.
