Has anyone seen the new stadium that is being built for the Beijing Olympics?

I saw it on the news this evening and all i could think was "That is the greatest eyesore i've ever seen... Seriously"

The design is supposed to look like a birds nest and contains 36kms of exposed steel. It was created by prize winning architects and was selected from a worldwide design competition. It will have a capacity of 100,000 seats for the Olympic games.

I could only find pictures of how the finished stadium will look, none of the stadium in its current form.

What do you think? Eyesore or Design excellence.

Dunno about design excellence but IMHO it looks very effective.
