A view of the Quantum Cloud sculpture, designed by Antony Gormley, is seen from an Emirates cable-car pod. The 30 m high sculpture was commissioned for the site and completed in 1999. It is constructed from a collection of tetrahedral units made from 1.5 m long sections of steel. The steel sections were arranged with the help of a computer model using a random walk algorithm commencing from points on the surface of an enlarged figure - based on Gormley's body - that forms a residual outline at the centre of the sculpture. The Millennium Dome (or O2 Arena) are situated a few minutes walk away from behind the sculpture. A portion of the North Greenwich Pier is visible at the foot of the photo.
