Two years ago, I posted about Dutch builder Johan Huibers' effort to build his own Noah's Ark as a way to help bring attention to God and inspire Children with the biblical story of the flood. He's now applied to moor the £1 million ark in London on the River Thames during the 2012 Olympic Games. From The Telegraph:
The vessel is 450ft long and 75ft wide and will be stuffed with pairs of model animals, while an aviary with free-flying live birds will take up most of the enormous deck house..."Noah's Ark 'could arrive in London for Olympics"
Twenty-five barges held together by a steel frame form the base of the ship, which also holds two conference rooms capable of hosting 1,500 people.
