Arup in Beijing
Solution for a modern city

Arup has played a major role in helping to shape Beijing’s modern landscape. The firm’s work includes iconic sporting structures such as the National Stadium and the National Aquatics Center.

The National Aquatics Centre, also known as the ‘Water Cube’, is one of the most dramatic and exciting sporting venues for the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008. Enclosed within the blue bubble walls are five swimming pools, including a wave machine and rides and a restaurant, along with seating and facilities for 17 000 spectators.

The National Stadium hosts the opening and closing ceremonies of the 29th Olympiad, as well as athletic track and field events. On completion it will have a capacity of 91 000 seats, including 11 000 temporary seats for the duration of the Games.

The Water Cube and the National Stadium are located in the Olympic Green, the focal point for the Beijing Games. The square shape of the Water Cube is a reflection of the Chinese symbol for Earth, while the adjacent circular form of the National Stadium, also design-engineered by Arup, represents Heaven.
