London Olympics 2012

Blue Wall

Since the beginning of construction, the Olympic site has been surrounded by a blue wall - now ubiquitous during the development phase of major building work. During one of Spectacle's shoots, inside the compound there was a warehouse with thousands of gallons of blue paint. Anti-grafitti squads would patrol the perimeter fence and paint out any graffiti.

This wall created some bizarre spaces, slicing bridges in half and blocking off roads and walkways.
