This was an analysis of the the London 2012 Olympic Games Aquatic Centre designed by the architect Zaha Hadid. The purpose of doing this analysis was that we can use it as a precedent for the final project of this advanced design course; a proposal for a Community Aquatic Center.
The Aquatic Centre was inspired by the rhythm of the water and so its double-curved roof cleverly solves the covering of aquatic facilities. The aquatic center is available in parallel with the river Lea, a nod to its discharge, and also responds to the scale and scope required in each interior space. The surface of the cover is stretched and supported laterally to free the interior space of obstacles that hinder the tracking of evidence.
The facilities will include two 50-meter Olympic swimming pools and a diving pool of 25 meters. It will have capacity for 20,000 people. After passing the Olympics will be reduced capacity to 3,500 people and all facilities will be made available to the community. The London 2012 Olympic Games Aquatic Centre will also shelter a fitness center and sports facilities for local clubs.
