Aquatics Centre is designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid. Construction of the venue was completed in July 2011.

Situated in Olympic Park at Stratford in east London, Aquatics Centre has the capacity of 17,500.

The two temporary "wings" will be removed post-games reducing the capacity to a regular 2,500 with an additional 1,000 seats available for major events. The Aquatics Centre will be transformed into a facility for the local community, clubs and schools, as well as elite swimmers, attracting an anticipated 800,000 visitors a year.
