OLYMPIC NATATORIUM

SHENYANG, CHINA

Among the many splashy designs that have been proposed for athletic venues at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, one in particular is making waves: the Natatorium for Shenyang City’s Olympic Park. Designed by HHCP, the aquatic center’s gracefully curving contours suggest the shape of a giant drop of water. The glass and circular network steel structure that encompasses the “water drop” shape, meanwhile, is comprised of a series of interlocking rings arranged in an undulating pattern. While the rings themselves bring to mind the familiar logo of the Olympic Games, the overall pattern conveys the explosion of tiny bubbles that accompanies a championship diver’s entrance into the water.
