Plans for summer ice rink at Marble Arch unveiled

Plans for a temporary ice rink and pavilion which will be built at Marble Arch in London in time for the 2012 summer olympics have been revealed

The 1,000-capacity ice rink and pavilion will be used to promote the 2014 Sochi winter Olympics in Russia.

The ice rink will allow visitors to ‘come to the winter during the hot summer,’ according to Dmitry Chernyshenko, Sochi 2014 organising committee president and chief executive.

A neighbouring pavilion will host cultural events and interactive displays.

Councillor Robert Davis, Westminster City Council’s deputy leader and cabinet member for the built environment, said: ‘We expect a planning application from Sochi shortly, and this will be assessed by our planning team in due course.’

Details of the architects are expected to be revealed later today.
