I feel sorry for our Olympic shooters this year. They must suffer with this eyesore of a venue.
Pictures are from a walkthrough featured on Dezeen which adds:
The shooting galleries for the London 2012 Olympic games are covered in spots that look the suckers of an octopusâ€™ tentacles.
The rest of their description actually focuses on the function of the buildings, so go read the whole thing if you’re interested.

Tentacles? I’ve seen enough hentai to know where this is going. At least the participants will be armed.
“At least the participants will be armed.”
I thought they were playing laser tag this time around, since it’s (formerly Great) Britain, and guns are teh ebil. So they’re only armed if it’s a horrible ’80s toy-based cartoon.
The UK is full of public and semi-public buildings designed by terrible architects. The usual strategy is “a) pretend it doesn’t exist”, or “b) if we can’t ignore it, give the designer a knighthood to forestall criticism”.
I notice more and more of them popping up in the US these days, but nothing quite this awful. It would serve better as a target than a venue…
Actually, they remind me of antique Electro Voice woofers Jennings Speaker Service reconed in assorted colors; placed at random in the building walls. Ugly – and non-functional to boot. However, they would make good targets.
If the question was “Who moved my cheese?” I think we now know the answer as to where it was moved to…
Is this where the laser tag competition (no real guns allowed) is going to take place?
