Zaha Hadid's London Aquatics Centre opens to the public
Sleek, and ready for its guests
Famed Iraqi/British architect and friend of Buro 24/7, Zaha Hadid's London Aquatics Centre opened in 2012 for the city's Olympic Games, and because of space allowances that had to be made for the mammoth crowds, temporary 'wings' were built to hold 15,000 seats, shrouding the clean, fluid form of Hadid's original design.
The wings were removed last year, and now, the centre – in its new 'Legacy' mode – is ready to open to the public in anticipation of the warmer seasons.
