Artists compete for Olympic commemorative structure

22Five artists have made the shortlist for their design ideas on the construction of a major structure that would be built in Stratford, to celebrate the 2012 Olympic Games.

The construction of the structure will be funded by the richest man in Britain, Lakshmi Mittal.

One competing design is of a structure that resembles a Native American totem pole and a cross according to reports.

Plans by Mittal suggest that the structure would be completely powered by solar panels, and light up during the night.

Among the five artists shortlisted for the design are Turner prize winners Antony Gormley and Anish Kapoor, who designed the Angel of the North.

Although the mayor of London stated that he will crack down on the presence of tall buildings in the London skyline, sources claim that if the project proceeds it will be a stunning addition to the skyline.
