contributed by Naomi

The National Stadium is dubbed the "bird's nest" because of the appearance of its innovative grid formation. The twig-like structural elements and the bowl-shaped roof are the masterpiece of the project, yet they posed great challenges for technicians and workers to make the building stand on its own feet. The National Stadium hosted the 2008 Olympic Games' opening and closing ceremonies, and the athletics and football competitions. After the Olympic Games, it became a center for sports and cultural activities and other creative industries.
