In pictures: Orbit tower rises over Olympic Park

These are the latest images showing the construction of Anish Kapoor’s 115 metre-tall ArcelorMittal Orbit tower on the Olympic Park in east London

The project was designed with Arup engineers and Ushida Findlay Architects.

Sponsored by ArcelorMittal, the £19 million structure is constructed from pre-fabricated steel components and features a giant fibreglass canopy at its base.
