Olympic Park Gets First Completed Venue: The View Tube

View Tube

The Olympic Park can today boast its first completed venue (assuming we're not counting an electricity substation as a venue). It's a viewing platform built from shipping containers, in the best Lea Valley tradition. The brightly coloured protuberance is hard to miss up on the Greenway, an old cycle path that cuts through the Park and provides the best opportunities to watch construction. The new building acts as a viewing point (slightly cringerly, they're calling it the View Tube), cafe and a community centre (presumably in legacy, right? - the only communities we've ever seen on the Greenway have beaks). No doubt more on this later from Diamond Geezer, who's been eyeing up the building for a while. Image by Diamond Geezer under Creative Commons license.
