Birds Nest

Beijing National Stadium, Beijing, People's Republic of China

The Beijing National Stadium, colloquially known as "the Bird's Nest," was designed for the 2008 Summer Olympics and Paralympics. The stadium is an engineering feat, integrating a myriad of complex systems which are rolled into an aesthetically, conceptually simple and stunning object. I was keen to capture the Birds Nest's complex structure, and in this image decided to isolate the upper section from the crowd filled lower approaches leading to the stadium.
