Whoah where is that stadium from?
That's the Olympic stadium in Beijing, China.
Yup. That pretty much sums it up. Though being up here in Washington, I paid attention to Qwest going up(dreaming of what could have been and what COULD be, for our beloved 9ers new digs) and I have to say that it pretty much went up the same as what the architects proposed drawings showed. I was pretty impressed how fast it went up too.
Not to carry on a dead argument, but I wasn't defending this current rendition of the proposal. I think that it is uglier than all get out and the 4 stairwells going to the same point is just about stupid. Can you bottleneck 30k+ people any better than that?
Think about it California/San Andreas Fault mmmmmm scary to think that the Architect that was employed to put this together even has a license to practice his incompetence.
So I'm sorry if I offend anyone with my criticism but it's entirely valid in this case. I've grown up around a master Architect who now lives with his Daughter and her family in Israel. I can guarantee that he would have crapped bricks at this proposal if that's all they had. Never mind this 2/3 split of the stadium. Will it be loud probably but when the dust settles who the hell cares how loud it was 3 minutes prior to the building coming down around our ears?
I'm sorry dude, but your getting a little carried away. Are you really trying to say that because you grew up around a master architect it gave you such a keen eye in the field to be able to dissect artist sketches to the point that you can tell that the building will come down in an earthquake, despite these designs and plans being created by multi-billion dollar corporations?
Please tell me you aren't serious.
