One of the London Olympics 2012’s most iconic buildings, the Aquatic Centre features its distinctive wave roof that is 160m long and up to 80m wide in places.
Three interesting facts:
- The three pools contain 10 million litres of water and are lined with 180,000 tiles.
- There are almost 600,000 tiles in the whole building.
- The Centre has a seating capacity of 2,500.
It was completed a year ahead of the Olympics at a cost of £242 million.
