In this artist's rendering provided by Dow Chemical Thursday, Aug. 4, 2011, an innovative wraparound curtain encircling the Olympic Stadium for the 2012 Games is seen. Olympic officials had scrapped the wrap late last year because its price tag of 7 million pounds ($11.4 million) had been deemed too expensive at a time of economic austerity. Architects and artists had decried the decision, suggesting the look and image of the games would suffer. But now, the wrap is back.
