Gone into orbit?

Whats your opinion on Anish Kapoor's Olympic offering? The artist's latest creation stands at 115 metres high and boasts two observation floors, up to which visitor will ascend in a lift and descend via a spiral staircase that snakes around the structure, costing £22.7million to create. 

'The Orbit' stands very very big, and very very red- characteristic of Kapoor's signature use of a single concentrated colour- alongside the Olympic Stadium, and has already been dramatically described 'a contorted mass of entrails..' I'm not sure if thats bad or good, but you can always count on Kapoor to mix it up abit!
