China turns Olympic Stadium into colourful underwater theme park

It’s an open secret that many structures that were built specifically for the Olympics, eventually become white elephants – a valuable but burdensome possession whose cost of upkeep is more troublesome than its worth. Many of these magnificent buildings, once the pride and joy of the host country, end up decrepit and abandoned.

Though one Olympic venue has been saved from this fate. The Beijing National Aquatic Center has transformed itself from a swimming and diving venue during the 2008 Olympics to a colourful underwater theme park. With the help of Toronto-based planning and design firm, Forrec Ltd., this structure is brimming with tourists and locals during the summer months.
