Beijing Olympics Stadium

Just stumbled across this site somehow a few days ago…I think I read some article about the new stadium being built for the Olympics, which may have led to reading a wikipedia thing about the design firm commissioned to do it, which led to this link:

http://www.bjghw.gov.cn/forNationalStadium/indexeng.asp

The site consists of various stadium designs pitched for the national stadium in Beijing, China.

Consists usually of 3D maquettes of the stadium as well as digital images of it.

Really great variety of examples and well thought through ideas.

Personal favourites:

BO1 is definitely at the top, very unusual yet stunningly beautiful and enginuitive piece of architecture design.

B11 another great design which breaks out of the mold and tries to do something different.

B12 I especially like the mix of modern design with a very traditional concept behind it stemming form an ancient chinese ritual, a really good way of approaching the task I think.
