London architect Asif Khan's 2,000 square-meter (21,500 sq ft) pavilion has been called the “Mount Rushmore of the digital age,” and its aim is to “make people the face of the Olympics.” The façade of the pavilion, sponsored by MegaFon, contains 10,000 actuators (or giant pins), which will create a changing display of three-dimensional portraits.
