Water Cube: Then and Now

Much like the Bird’s Nest, the Water Cube made a radical transformation from December of 2005 to August or 2008.  While the Bird’s Nest has become one of the most recognizable symbols of the Beijing 2008 Olympics, the Water Cube was perhaps the most beautiful venue of the Olympics.

I've lived in 5 major cities across the world (Shanghai, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Madrid, Hong Kong) and I've visited about 30-40 countries. I studied international business in college. As such my topics and posts are not completely random; I do have some idea what I'm talking about.
