April Fool?

A spiralling sculpture designed by Turner Prize-winning artist Anish Kapoor has been chosen as the monument to mark the London 2012 Olympic Games. The 115m tall piece, named the ArcelorMittal Orbit, will be placed in the Olympic Park and will be 22m higher than New York's Statue of Liberty. The £19.1m design incorporates the five Olympic rings and will offer visitors panoramic views of London. Click here for the full story.

April Fools' Day is an odd day to announce this and the name 'ArcelorMittal Orbit' is crying out for an anagram so I'm waiting till tomorrow to hear if this weird structure really is going to be part of our Olympic Park. Polls show it's not gone down well with the British public but I kinda like it.

I'll let you know tomorrow.
