The ArcelorMittal Orbit by British artist Anish Kapoor is a massive structure that rises 35 stories above the Olympic Park and resembles a smashed roller coaster. Kapoor based the tower on taking a point in space that is "orbited" by a dancing line of steel.
We have found a short film essay that takes you inside the tower and asks important questions about how we judge architecture and art in a modern society. Nothing Will Be Restrained – A Short History of the Tower by Simolab-Creative AV was shown at the London Festival of Architecture. Scroll down to the bottom of the post to watch the film.
The London 2012 Olympic Games begin on July 27, 2012.
