London Aquatics Centre 2012 by Zaha Hadid photographed by Hufton + Crow
Here are some more photographs of Zaha Hadid's recently completed aquatics centre for the London 2012 Olympic Games, taken by UK photographers Hufton + Crow.
Six curved concrete diving boards stick out like tongues across one pool at the end of the main hall, beneath an undulating wave-like roof.
The competition pool is also located in this hall, which will seat 17,500 spectators during the games.
Petal-shaped openings allow light through the concrete ceiling of a second hall, where a practice pool is located.
Wide glass walls provide views of pools in both rooms from connecting corridors.
