Description

This title is temporarily out of stock. Your order will be despatched automatically when stock is received from our supplier.

Without a doubt the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games will not only attract worldwide attention for the sporting contests, but also for the architectural settings and arenas. The exemplary and prestigious stadiums will remain of interest long after the games are over.

Olympic Architecture, Beijing 2008 is a comprehensive survey of all the venues for the 29th Olympic Games. It provides detailed insights into the specialized stadium architecture with an abundance of visual material such as birds-eye views, illustrations of details, plans/elevations/sections, and rendering drawings.
Part One of the volume is an overview written by Ma Guoxin, architectural master and member of the Chinese Academy of Engineering. Part Two gives descriptions of the individual Olympic venues, including 15 newly-built ones (e.g. the Main Olympic Project Bird's Nest by Herzog & De Meuron, and the National Aquatics Center Water Cube by the China Construction Design International (Shenzhen) of CSCEC, PTW Architects, Australia, and Arup Australasia), 14 reconstructed buildings (e.g. Olympic Sports Center Stadium, Olympic Sports Center Gymnasium, Workers Stadium) and 6 temporary structures (e.g. Olympic Green Hockey Field, Wukesong Baseball Field).
