Water Cube

It's quite amazing the Water Cube that will host the aquatic portion of Beijing Olympics. It was designed by PTW in collaboration with Arup for the structures and is completely enclosed by Etfe, a particular type of Teflon that reacts to light modifying its color.
Moreover, Water Cube shows some green aspects, being heated by solar panels and recycling 80% of the rain water.
Next to Water Cube there is the main stadium, designed by Herzog & De Meuron and much more published.

Some of you might have already seen great pictures of it on bee-zee, otherwise go take a look!
