World's Longest Tunnel Slide to Be Built in June

New, 1 comment

The mayor of London insisted

File under: Actually Happening. The project that will turn Anish Kapoor's ArcelorMittal Orbit in London into the world's longest tunnel slide is now slated for this June. The slide has been designed by Belgian artist Carsten Höller, and it sounds like neither he not Kapoor is particularly interested in defending it against accusations of gimmickry—apparently, when asked about the inspiration for the project Kapoor just blamed London's mayor, saying, "Boris Johnson – how can I put it – foisted this on the project, and kind of insisted."
