  • Beijing Travel Guide - Bird's Nest HD

    Beijing National Stadium, colloquially as the Bird's Nest, is a stadium in Beijing, China. The stadium was designed for use throughout the 2008 Summer Olympics and Paralympics. Located in the Olympic Green, the $423 million stadium is the world's largest steel structure. 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". Ai Weiwei, the artistic consultant, played a critical role in pushing the design to have unique Chinese characteristics. The retractable roof was later removed from th...

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/
