Huainan Olympic Park

Although the Beijing Olympics is over, but the passion of the Olympic spirit is still on. Here is the new released project of Huainan Olympic Park, Huainan, Anhui Province. Can you tell all these balls?
Remember the Villa Piano and Violin from last year? It's the same city.

Thanks Koala Shiyun from OMA!

bird's nest in bamboo

As the Olympics approaches, I always found more and more interesting things by regular Chinese. Here is another story. Some farmers in Shuangxi, Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, made a bamboo Bird's Nest of the scale 1:20, which took them half a month and spent almost a thousand pieces of Mao zhu, the local bamboo.

Also, a friend of mine recommends a bar at Fuxing Park, downtown Shanghai, which has a kind of Water Cube façade, esp. at night.
