A cursory glance at the red-looped tower next to the Olympic Stadium and you could be forgiven for mistaking it as one of Tim Burton’s film sets. However, the sculpture – the ArcleorMittal Orbit – is now the UK’s tallest sculpture, after construction was recently completed.
Standing 375 feets (114.5 meters) tall, the sculpture was completed on Friday, when the final steel loop was put into place.
