Many of you perhaps have already seen the stunning computer rendered image, shown above, of the national stadium, better known as the bird’s nest. But do you wonder what it looks like during the seven years of building?
Recently, an amateur photographer Xu Xinqiang 徐信强 put together a collection of photos he took of the bird’s nest at all stages of building. You can find more details at his blog.
The following 14 photos are the ones hand picked by Xu to show the changing scenes out of his bedroom window, which faces the site of the national stadium, over seven years. The first one was taken in September 2001.
