    ​The London Aquatic Center symbolizes the environmental approach of the organizer: build permanent structures if they can be used after the event or temporary, where appropriate. Thus, only the central part (2,500 places) is preserved as Olympic legacy. The wings, which offeredadditional capacity of 15 000 seats, are today dismounted. Composite materials used for the roof and outer walls have been removed, packaged and shipped at Texyloop, to generate raw materials of second low environmental impact generation.
