The Bird Nest Exterior Is Completed!

Recommended Posts

Yup, it's reported that it's completed already!

Pardon me, but they are magnificent and really incredible that they completed the major infrastructure more than 1 year ahead. My blog has the news.

Cool. Hope the details give the stadium more energy and life (i want to see how it looks on night :P ). I'm sure that the inside will be as spectacular as the exterior.

I'm very impressed how quick the construction is proceeding. And it's good to see that this time, the Olympic Stadium will be completed more than just a few months before the Games! :P

But in terms of the design, I'm still not fond about it. Currently, it reminds me rather of a parking garage than of a stadium. And as a visitor, I'd feel somehow trapped inside that dense braiding. As a bird nest, it actually should actually express warmth and protection. But to me, this stadium appears (also on the computer graphics of its final looks) rather cool and repelling to me.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks it looks like a car park! I think, however, it'll be fine with some landscaping around it and once it's all properly lit up it'll look magnificent.

i have to say congratulations to BOCOG! 3 years ago when the design was revealed, i thought it was a poor design......but seeing it now, the structure completed, i think it'll look fantastic.

well done, China.
