2012 Summer Paralympics.
will also host the 2017 World Championships in Athletics. capacity: 80,000, making it the third-largest stadium in England Construction: 2007-2011 Populous Architects: specializing in the design of sports facilities and convention centers, major special events. London's Green Olympic Stadium The stadium is built using nearly four times less steel, approximately 10,700 tons, in the structure than that of the Olympic Stadium in Beijing for the 2008 Olympics. Stadium Structure Lego-like structure (1) Source: engtechmag.wordpress.com. September 2012. Source: deskarati.com. September 2012 Source: deskarati.com.September 2012. 2.5 m-wide fabric panels, twisted at 90-degree angles to allow entry to the stadium at the bottom of the structure. "The drive was to construct a small, compact, lightweight stadium.
The stadium also uses large diameter pipes which were surplus on completion of pipeline projects, recycled granite. fast on-site assembly, compression truss and roof column connections.

held in place with tensioned cables. Printed using UV curable inks. Stadium Section A truss ring surrounding the upper tier Suspends the roof.

Spectators enter the stadium via a podium level, which is level with the top of the permanent seating bowl. lightweight steel and concrete upper tier is built up from this "bowl" to accommodate a further 55,000 spectators.

Lower tier: elliptical bowl that is made up of low-carbon-dioxide concrete. allow for 25,000 seats.

The foundation of the base level is 5,000 piles reaching up to 20 meters deep.

The Arena of the stadium is excavated out of the soft clay on the site.

The natural slope of the land is incorporated into the design, with warm-up and changing areas dug into a semi-basement position. Cable-supported structure covers 2/3 of the stadium seating.
Fabric stretches between the steel roof supports made from a phthalate-free polyvinyl chloride (PVC) fabric to keep costs down.
The material will be reused in football stadiums in Brazil for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Others will be recycled with the PVC Recycling process Vinyloop.

There are 532 individual floodlights on 14 triangular towers
The towers weigh approx 35 tonnes and hold a maximum of 44 lights
Each individual light is 2kw

PVC is in constructions (cheaper, stronger than traditional alternatives such as copper or ductile iron). access is via several footbridges positioned around the building's perimeter using industrial waste concrete. they dry as soon as they are cured.

making the venue financial and able to justify capital cost. Sport is benefiting from improved faster and safer construction techniques: allowing light weight opening roofs, moving seating tiers and playing fields.
New hybrid grass type require less light and grow faster.
21 century stadia are calculated and designed on computers creating 3D virtual models. Allowing a greater number of different events to take place on the same pitch. Computer tools allow the design team to communicate effectively Spectators will be able to see the exact view they will enjoy at the time of booking.
