And the Gold for Olympic excitement goes to…. LASSCO!

Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest Architecture features here.

Finally, it’s here. Olympic Friday. Hurray for the opening ceremony (come on Danny Boyle, you can do it) and the prospect of a lycra-heavy August. Sod the double dip recession, let’s get behind our national triceps – I mean team – and enjoy the Olympics for the spectacle it is, haha!

To get you in the mood, here’s a great shot from LAASCO Three Pigeons (just off J6 M40) who are obviously feeling the Olympic love too. I drove past yesterday and loved their playful homage to the greatest sporting event on earth. As you’d expect from an architectural salvage business, there’s a story behind the wheels. These are actually the original oak bell wheels from Magdalen Tower, Oxford –  now surplus to requirements after the re-hanging of the bells there in the Spring and now finding excellent use as Olympic rings.

Bravo LAASCO. A clear podium winner!

PS Anyone else who sees something Olympically cool, take a pic and let me know. We could have some fun with this.
