With just 412 days to the Beijing Olympics, work continues to be underway at the Beijing National Stadium, which was designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architects Herzog & de Meuron, in collaboration with ArupSport and China Architecture Design & Research Group, and contemporary Chinese artist, Ai Weiwei, as the Artistic Consultant for design. Also affectionately known to the Chinese as the bird’s nest, the stadium comes at a cost of 3.5 billion yuan (422,873,850 USD).
