I have recently been inside the Swim Center both day and night and taken over 100 photographs which can be seen in the following galleries. These can be sent as E-cards too.

Day time inside and outside the Beijing Olympic Swim Center

Night time constuction work inside the Beijing Olympic Swim Center

Night time view of the Beijing National Stadium (Birds Nest) from the roof of the Swim Center

A few samples:

Thanks for the pics Peter and welcome to the forum. The Aquacube is a very odd building indeed. I didn't realise it was going to be cushioned like the Allianz Arena, I thought the blue panels would be flat semi-transparent things, more like a big mosaic or stained-glass window.

And I'm still not sure I like the stadium yet, maybe it'll grow on me, we'll see.

But great photos!! :D

Thanks for the welcomes and its nice to think of myself as your secret agent in Beijing, Baron. Maybe I can get a part in the movie...

Something else we've been working on which you should check out is the view from above of the ongoing construction of the Olympic green, you can click to see 2 different times. The view pans through 270 degrees. Its still being fine tuned and we have another to add.

Thanks for your interest!

Getting in the Stadium I think is pretty much a job for an accomplished spy. The place is under wraps. I heard they were putting in hydraulic platforms for the opening ceremony. But I doubt I will be getting in there... <_<
