Beijing National Stadium

After over two weeks of competition, finally the XXIX Olympic Summer Games are over. Time to have a look at where it all happened. The most prominent location was the "Birds Nest", the Beijing National Stadium, designed by Herzog & de Meuron. You can get a better look at it on the official homepage or an even better resolution satellite image directly from digital globe here.

Adjecent to the Stadium the National Aquatics Center can be seen. The translucent blue cube illumniated at night with a multimedia fascade.
