An amazing architectural masterpiece, 'ArcelorMittal Orbit' is a 115 metres (377 ft) high observation tower in the Olympic Park in Stratford, London.

The stunning steel sculpture is situated between the Olympic Stadium and the Aquatics Centre.

It allows visitors to see the entire Olympic Park from two observation platforms.

The project is expected to cost 19.1 million pounds, with 16 million pounds coming from Britain's richest man and Chairman of the ArcelorMittal Steel, Lakshmi Mittal.

Designed by Anish Kapoor and Cecil Balmond, Orbit is Britain's largest showcase of public art.
