Costs treble for Zaha's exotic 2012 Aquatic Centre 

The UK’s Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) has reported that Zaha’s Aquatic Centre will now cost £210 million GBP, three times the original budget of £75 million. Part of the overrun is due to the UK’s VAT tax but moulded components in Zaha’s sweeping roof and expensive glass panels have been blamed as well. The roof is expected to cost £60 million alone.
