Designed by Marks Barfield Architects the London Eye was launched in 2000 to celebrate the millennium. At 135m, the Coca-Cola London Eye is the world’s largest cantilevered observation wheel and there are 32 capsules.
Originally, the eye was intended as a temporary structure, able to dismantled and transported to a new location, and had planning permission for 5 years. But with millions boarding it every year the lease has been extended.
