The design was awarded to a submission from the Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron in April 2003 after a bidding process that included 13 final submissions. The design, which originated from the study of Chinese ceramics, implemented steel beams in order to hide supports for the retractable roof; giving the stadium the appearance of a bird's nest. Leading Chinese artist Ai Weiwei was the artistic consultant on the project. The retractable roof was later removed from the design after inspiring the stadium's most recognizable aspect. Ground was broken on 24 December 2003 and the stadium officially opened on 28 June 2008. A shopping mall and a hot...

A shopping mall and a hotel are planned to be constructed to increase use of the stadium, which has had trouble attracting events, football and otherwise, after the Olympics. The stadium's design originally called for a capacity of 100,000 people; however 9,000 were removed during a simplification of the design. The new total of 91,000 was shaved further when 11,000 temporary seats were removed after the 2008 Olympics; bringing the stadium's capacity to 80,000. The stadium will be used for the opening and closing ceremonies of 2022 Winter Olympics. It will be the only stadium to date to host both the Summer and Winter Olympics and Paralympics opening ceremonies. http://www.n-s.cn/

Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews The 2008 Beijing Olympics Games helped win eyeballs for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). However, a set of photos circulating on the internet showed most of these Olympic venues are now deserted and left with no maintenance. Commentators say, the CCP used the 2008 Beijing Olympics as vanity projects to glorify itself, but brought a nightmare to the Chinese people in reality. The "Bird's Nest", designed by Chinese renowned artist Ai Weiwei, was a symbol of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. In contrast to being the sensation of the year, it is now idle. Tourists only take photos outside the construction, giving up an expensive interior visit that charges 50 yuan per person. A total of 37 gorgeous stadiums were built for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, with estimated costs of 290 billion yuan. The figure is four times that of this year's London Olympics. Early in March, Ai Weiwei told Japanese media that he felt regret over designing the "Bird's Nest". The 2008 Beijing Olympics is a CCP's propaganda tool, "a stage for glorifying itself ", said Ai Weiwei. Yang Weidong, Beijing-based independent filmmaker, said that the 2008 Games brought nothing more than a nightmare to the Chinese people. Yang Weidong: "How many gold medals won have nothing to do with ordinary citizens who just hope for a stable life. Whose money did you splash out (for the Games)? They were not of your CCP, but the hard-earned money of citizens, the taxes we've paid." Today, the majority of the 2008 Olympics venues are idle. The Water Cube was converted into a public water park, charging 200 yuan per ticket. The contractor planned to make sales of 3,000 tickets daily, but would not disclose actual sales figures. You don't need to line up for a water slide, he said. Canoe Stadiums, beach volleyball courts, bicycle motocross venues, baseball stadiums, and other venues have all been deserted and ignored for maintenance since the Closing Ceremony. Chinese netizens commented, "The feast was held for the organizers and participants to take whatever they wanted." "The venues still need maintenance money even if left for public use, so it would be better locked and closed to security expenditure." Gong Shengli, China's financial think-tank researcher, said all international events held by CCP authorities were vanity projects for attracting eyeballs but offered nothing for citizens. Gong Shengli: "Over past 62 years, China's (CCP) regime has spent money earned by the civilians, but has deprived them of the power to have final say on it. That is unprecedented in all countries with the rule of law in this world." Gong Shengli attributes the Olympics venues' idleness to lack of legal continuity in China's Constitution. One generation of the CCP leadership only care their own tenures. Gong Shengli: "The (CCP's) Constitution basically equals zero. It means that in China, all public issues handlings and role of legal process are decided by the incumbent leaders. And their successors largely will not involved in the decisions made by the predecessors." Reportedly, 31.8 billion yuan were thrown into the construction of 2008 Olympic venues, including working capital. Another 71.3 billion yuan were spent on the environmental cleanup costs. Around 180 billion yuan were spent on road infrastructures. Yang Weidong says that the actual and the subsequent costs were beyond the CCP's consideration, as it aimed to tout its political achievements by holding the best Olympic Games in the world. Yang Weidong: "How long is such a iconic building to be built for use? At least 100 years, OK, let's say it's only 60 years. Then how much maintenance costs would there be in those 60 years? The taxes we paid have been spent on these maintenance costs, who ever asked our permission beforehand?" Gong Shengli says, it is thought provoking that such huge image projects only dismissed former Beijing Vice Mayor Liu Zhihua. There has since never been any news reported on the CCP official corruption linked to the 2008 Olympic Games. On July 21, the heaviest rainstorm in 61 years fell on Beijing. The submerged city suffered ten hours of torrential downpour, caused dozens of deaths and an economic loss of nearly ten billion yuan. The news unleashed a flood of Chinese public criticism on the internet. A netizen asked, "how could a modern international city that spent tens of millions yuan to hold the Olympic Games build such vulnerable ground water drainage works?" 《神韵》2011世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/

The Beijing National Aquatics Centre, also known as the Water Cube (or abbreviated [H2O]3 ), is an aquatics centre that was built alongside Beijing National Stadium in the Olympic Green for the 2008 Summer Olympics. Beijing National Stadium can seat as many as 91,000 spectators during the Olympics. The capacity will then be reduced to 80,000 after the Games. It has replaced the original intended venue of the Guangdong Olympic Stadium. The stadium is 330 metres long by 220 metres wide, and is 69.2 metres tall. The stadium uses 258,000 square metres of space and has a usable area of 204,000 square metres. It was built with 36 km of unwrapped steel, with a combined weight of 45,000 tonnes. The stadium has some 11,000 square metres of underground rooms with waterproof walls. The stadium will cost up to 3.5 billionyuan (≈423 million USD).
