Temporary 5,000 seat capacity Water Polo venue built for the 2012 Olympics
On a prominent site opposite the Aquatic Centre at the eastern entrance to the Olympic Park the purpose built arena will host a single event at the Games.
The demountable structure, which will be removed from the site after the Games, is is constructed from a kit of parts that comes from, and can be returned to, the supply chain.
The venue, which includes a competition pool, warm-up pool and ancillary accommodation for spectators, athletes, press and VIPs is housed under a sloping roof made from air-inflated recyclable plastic cushions.
