There's a nice article in the Guardian about the London Eye.
London is full of buildings that are admired and adored, but the Eye has achieved a different magnitude of success altogether. It is arguably the great architectural statement of our time. There are very few people who don't like the Eye. You can measure its success in figures and statistics. It is the most popular paid-for attraction in the country, it draws more than 3.5 million visitors a year and, in a recent survey by Trip Advisor, it came out as the top attraction in Europe, beating even the Eiffel Tower. Research carried out when it was re-applying for planning permission showed that support for the Eye, both in the local area and across London, stood at 85%.
