Take part in a London Olympic cycle race finish

Berlin artist duo, Köbberling, Kaltwasser have built Goal! a new cycling race post at the View Tube. Cycle to the View Tube and you will be able to end your ride in the style of racing Olympic cyclists.
The artists are constructing an archway made from discarded and recycled materials found around East London. The piece celebrates everyday cyclists reaching their goal in a style similar to that of the Olympics.
Kobberling Kaltwasser’s Architecture Journal award winning previous project, ‘The Jellyfish Theatre’ was conceived as part of the Oikos Project by Topher Campbell, Artistic Director of The Red Room Theatre and Film company. The Red Room commissioned Kobberling Kaltwasser to create the The ‘Jelly Fish Theatre’ and it was part of the London Festival of Architecture in 2010. A temporary structure, it was London’s first fully-functioning theatre made with volunteers entirely from recycled and reclaimed materials and situated in a South London playground.
