What’s everyone think of this Tower to be built for the Olympics in London?  I think it’s a really nice nod to the Tatlin’s Tower from the Russsian Constructivist Movement. It’s forward thinking, eye catching and big.  Any huge public art like this is always controversial.  Even when I don’t necessarily like a piece of art, I still have to appreciate it for the thought and process which made it.  Someone somewhere obviously liked it.  Maybe even a couple people in order to have gotten it built.  I for one will be going up it and have a look around.
