    Discovery documentary.

    Beijing as “new architecture laboratory”, with innovative (and expensive) architectural projects. Olympics as venue for China to, basically, show off and announce its entry into the world stage as a superpower. Bird’s Nest as architectural and sporting center of the Olympics. Single “thread” of steel wrapping around the stadium. Captured public imagination. Herzog+Mauron+Wei Wei.
