Boris's Massive Erection - Cloud Cuckoo Land

Boris Johnson's competition for building an Olympics tower (the £15M cost of which will be funded by Lakshmi Mittal, the steel magnate) have received a number of "interesting" entries, including one from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for a cloud of inflatable plastic bubbles that would float above London's skyline.

The MIT architects are quoted in This is London:

"It proposes an entirely new form of observation deck, high above the Olympics — one from which one can not only see the whole of London, but the whole of the world, immersed in the euphoric gusts of weather and world data.

It offers London's highest park and an immersion within both our great clouded skies and the cosmos of our dataworlds — as well as a live information system transmitting data and imagery from around the city and the world

'Nuff said!
