The Bird Nest And Water Cube


The spectacular Bird's Nest stadium in Beijing is hailed as the finest arena in the world and full of hidden symbolism. With the Water Cube (in square) in the opposite, the Bird's Nest (in round) is said to mirror a traditional Chinese philosophy that the sky is round and the ground is square, which serves as the basic regimen in Chinese culture. Nowadays, as 2008 Olympic Games ended, Bird's Nest has been opened to the public. Over the years, it has become one of the most popular destinations among the tourists from all over the world. As a new landmark of Beijing city, it has played an active part in diversifying and enriching the people's lives in Beijing. In the future, it will bring more surprises to the world and become more and more popular.The National Aquatics Centre, also known as Water Cube, is one of the most dramatic and exciting venues to host sporting events for the Beijing Olympics in 2008. The external appearance was inspired by the natural formation of soap bubbles! Water Cube utilized state-of-the-art technology and materials to achieve the visually exciting structure, but it's more than just a pretty place.
