The Water Cube is currently building constructed in the most unconventional of the world, using the latest technologies, showing the world China's new vision of architecture.
It is composed of cells form bubbles, polyhedral shapes that blend together to complete a deal cubic space. This method was invented by two scientists in Dublin and is called Weaire Phelan structure.
To achieve the structure is performed in one section of foam bubbles, as the resultant coated metal structure will be later. Follows something like an organic structure. Building walls and ceilings are over 4,000 balloons, of which the largest are nine feet in diameter. To achieve them were used over 22,000 dabil stainless steel segments, which combines more than 12,000 nodes.
