the new cool in Beijing

Modern architecture that will change the skyline in Beijing appear to have a European feel.

The new CCTV headquarters designed by Rem Koolhass. Very Parisian monument.

The Olympic National Stadium designed by Swiss firm Herzog & de Meuron - dubbed the bird's nest. Despite the nickname, very German.

Water Cube - Beijing National Aquatics Centre designed by PTW, CECSC and Arup. A mattress from say, the Netherlands?

I wonder if Feng Shui was incorporated into the designs.

Not much happening. Skins is on tonight.
