Inside the Watson Steel Plant where the ArcelorMittal Orbit is being fabricated in parts.
The ArcelorMittal Orbit is made up of 366 star-like steel nodes like the one pictured.
The public can watch the ArcelorMittal Orbit being built from afar.
The ArcelorMittal Orbit will be 114.5m high when complete.
Each steel ring is lifted into place by cranes and then bolted by three ironworkers.
The structure will be one continuous loop.
Visitors will be able to take one of two lifts up to the ArcelorMittal Orbit's viewing platforms and can then walk down the 455 steps.
If it was a vertical tower, with all loops flattened out, the ArcelorMittal Orbit would be taller than the Eiffel Tower.
2,000 tonnes of steel and 19,000 litres of red paint have been used to build the ArcelorMittal Orbit.
