Olympic Park, The Water Cube Beijing MG_2603

The Beijing National Aquatics Center or “Water Cube” hosted the swimming, diving and synchronized swimming events. It has a capacity of 6,000 (17,000 during the 2008 Olympics) and is located next to the National Stadium. Despite its nickname, the building is not an actual cube, but a cuboid (a rectangular box). It will become later the site of the curling competitions during the 2022 Winter Olympics.
