If you haven't been living under a rock, you know that Beijing will host this summer's Olympic games. In preparation for the games, Beijing has concocted some interesting new architecture. The city recently unveiled a new airport terminal, built to resemble a dragon; the National Aquatic Center, called the Watercube, created to look like an enormous cube of bubbly water; and the Beijing National Stadium, the primary site of the 2008 Summer Games, which bears a likeness to a giant woven basket sprouting from the ground.
