Beijing National Aquatics Center
The National Aquatics Center, also known as the Water Cube, was one of the most dramatic and exciting sporting venues constructed for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.Enclosed within the bubble walls are five swimming pools (including a wave machine and rides), a restaurant and seating and facilities for 17,000 spectators.It looks like a huge blue box, from which it takes its nickname the Water Cube. It is blue in order to reflect sunlight. It shines in the sunlight like a pearl in water. From the inside, you may discover that the pneumatic cushions of all sizes are just like sea bubbles.The design combines modern technologies with Chinese traditional values. In tradition, Chinese conceptualized a square Earth and a round Heaven, and this formed the design central theme. Moreover, the cube shape dominates ancient urban buildings. Its design is of traditional style to meet all its functional requirements.Designed by Chinese and Australian, it is the first building in the world built upon the soap bubble theory, and sports a polyhedral steel framed structure.
