    From the blurb,

    The jury also felt that there was a sense of delight in the way the pod emerges from the bowels of the earth, which can be enjoyed by passers-by.

    This is not my experience as a local who passes it almost daily. When the pod or should i say double curved ‘oblate ellipsoid rises from the ground the majority of passers by turn away. This is because you have a hundred plus tourists with cameras aimed at and snapping away in your direction :D

    or can't call it Brighton Eye due to London Eye and possibility of getting sued so let's be clever and call it ''i'
    they were prob full of glee when someone came up with it!

    “The ‘i’ stands for intelligence, innovation and integrity,” says David Marks, one half of Marks Barfield, the husband-and-wife architects behind the London Eye and now creators of the British seaside’s latest surreal spectacle. It might also stand for incredible – that their madcap scheme ever got off the ground.

    cupid_stunt Handle with care.

    Spotting this thread made me laugh, because an old mate was in it when it first broke down, and the replies to his FB post were so funny, not that I can find them now, but I was reminded of this...
