June 26, 2013 - London Eye



I came across this image when I was looking at bridges and thought it was a lovely shot of the Eye. Can't remember where I saw it, though. My apologies to the photographer.

Seriously, that is a really good photo with the foreground composed so well.

So how was the London Eye constructed... ?

= built horizontally on the ground and then tilted upright
= built horizontally on the ground and then flown in by helicopter
= cables strung from the supports, one-at-a-time, and built vertically

The answer is here

There is a series of construction images at Construction Photography.

Lastly is this lovely image I found at The Garden of Eaden:

That is a very usual lift for a crane. Not directly upward, but laterally.

It took 10 days to raise it.
But it's a big rip off, it only goes 0.033 rpm, that's no fun.
