UK - London 2012 - Olympic Park - New housing

Not sure whether this block of apartments is part of the Athletes Village, or whether it's speculative housing built right on the edge of the London 2012 Olympic Park but it certainly shows how a little colour can make a building more interesting.

 

By the way, I'd love to know who the Architects were if anyone out there knows.

 

Update : Having done a bit of research I've discovered it's 'Icona Point' by Stock Woolstencroft for the developers Telford Homes. The use of coloured glass was apparently inspired by the work of Contemporary Artist Donald Judd.
