Olympic Stadium

I have been watching a lot of Beijing 2008 Olympics and have been taken back by a lot of the quality and design produced for this event. However by far the most superior piece of design is the National stadium which cost over £200 million and is the largest steel structure! It was designed by a Swiss architecture firm especially for Beijing 2008 and has been commonly referred to as the Birds Nest.

Its an impressive piece of architecture. It makes you wonder how we'll pull it off in 2012, if it goes anything by our logo, I would be lying if I say I wasn't worried.
