The 100-metre high oddity to mark the ‘entrance’ to East London

Look at it. Just… look at it.

The London Gate

This is the London Gate. It’s 100-metres tall and has some sort of bizarre glass elevator attached to it.

Until I’d seen it had been posted on Londonist, I was almost sure this was a wind up.

They’ve described it as a set of giant goalposts – goalposts which will sit at the beginning of High Street 2012 – the name given to the road which runs from the City straight through to Romford.

Intriguing stuff, and for those of us who think it looks a bit daft, there is one saving grace: it’s only temporary.

But then again – they said that about the Eiffel Tower.
