The first images of a proposed spherical sport and music venue to be built at Stratford have been published here in Dezeen magazine. The exterior and interior of the huge sphere will be covered with screens described as the “largest and highest resolution media display on Earth”.

It’s been designed by Populous, whose London base is at Putney.
