Impressive stadiums, theaters and public buildings that fill us with admiration, colossal monuments erected during the Games. The Beijing Olympics have turned into a veritable museum of visual spectacle. The color of the dazzling opening ceremony of the Games has brought us even closer to the monuments made by China. Beijing is now the center of the world. And most certainly will remain so for many years.
Two striking twin towers of 230 meters in height, linked by a platform on top, will be one of the key symbols of the new Beijing. Host the new headquarters of Chinese television. The Pekin people have already been baptized as “trouser legs” due to the way it presents the horizon of capital china. From the base of the towers, the vision we have of them is simply amazing. Surely, with his name, a little here, a brand of jeans will make a spot with the towers as a backdrop.
The National Theater is another great new buildings following the arrival of the Games. His vast sports hall will house not one, but surely that will delight all Pekin people and visitors who come to hear the dramatic opera china. We also admire all those who come to check the Chinese circus, acrobatics. During the Games, will be carried out numerous activities highly spectacular.
To see something genuine and funny. Terminal 3 of Norman Foster, the largest and most impressive of the world, with huge columns, red Chinese-style, which seemed out of any temple. It is impressive to get off the plane and find something. It is the gateway to the monumental china.
37 stadiums have been built following the dispute over the Olympics. The National Stadium in Beijing is known as “bird’s nest”, with an impressive steel facade that has become for many the symbol of the city. There is capacity for 91,000 people, although the opening ceremony was increased to 100,000 seats. It is impressive that the highway crosses over, it has always been guarded by the police so that nobody could climb it and take pictures inside the Olympic Stadium.
Another of the big stars is that Pekin people called the “water cube”, the National Aquatic Center. The exterior is an amazing spectacle of huge drops of water. And is that the monumentality of Beijing will continue to be used after the Games. In fact, many of the stadiums have been built near universities that did not have sports, so they can now be exploited.
A simple visit to the new Beijing is the Center of Urban Planning, south of Tiananmen. This museum charts the documents are collected old Beijing, with audio-visual of the emperors who built the Forbidden City. The top floor awaits a spectacular model of the city. Imagine how it could be a model of a city of 15 million.
