The Birds Nest

This year the Air n Style was held in the Chinese National Stadium which is also known as The Birds Nest. The stadium was built for the 2008 Summer Olympics and is nothing short of spectacular. So much steel was used in the construction of this beast that it caused a shortage in the entire world......thanks China

Apparently the architect of the stadium wrote some anti government statements and is still in jail.

The outside view is no less impressive, especially in the snow.
