Water Cube Imagery

One of the absolute poster children for today's digital architecture is the Beijing National Aquatic Centre designed by Arups and Australia's PTW. This signature building will become all the more famous later this year of course, it really is a stunning piece of work.
The whole structure is a grand architectural scale piece of art!

Anyhow, I was looking for a nice reference image for the Water Cube for my COFA course (Contemporary Aesthetics in Digital Architecture) when a simple Google Images search for "water cube" revealed a wealth of gorgeous photos of the building and related things. The bubbly, web-like aesthetic can be seen in construction, cg rendering and products - just have a look...
