While meeting all the functional and technical requirements of the Olympic Stadium, the design of the spatial effect are new and radical, simple and unsophisticated, which has created unprecedented landmark for the 2008 Olympic Games.
Susceptor combines with the stadium, just like the roots combine with the tree. Spaces between the trails provide service facilities for the guests coming here, like the sinking garden, square paving of stones, the Bamboo Grove, the mineral-like landscape and the opening to the inside of the susceptor. The entrance of the stadium rises slightly so that the panoramic view of the entire Olympic Park complex can be glanced over.
Just like the soft fillings in the bird's nest made of branches, light transmission films are filled into the empty space between the stadium structure for waterproofing of the roof. All the facilities like the restaurant, guest room, stores and toilet are all self-controlled unit, so that the building facade is not all closed which brings natural ventilation for the stadium and that is also an important unit of the environmental protection design.
