This week’s photo shows the growing ArcelorMittal Orbit, a sculpture designed by Anish Kapoor, being assembled in the Olympic Park. The building work is being watched by a family from The View Tube, a community centre built from shipping containers which overlooks the site.

The photo was taken by Andy Wilkes who works on the Olympic site and is also one of the 100 official BT London 2012 Storytellers, a group of bloggers, photographers, artists, musicians and film-makers who are documenting the games.
