National Aquatics Centre Introduction

Introduction
The National Aquatics Centre in Beijing was officially opened o­n January 28 after four years of construction. Nicknamed ‘the water cube,’ the aquatics centre is located near the national stadium at the heart of Beijing’s Olympic green, and will host the swimming, diving and synchronized swimming events during the games. Made primarily from a plastic called ETFE, chief designer Zheng Fang has said the membranous structure will last 100 years despite its delicate appearance.

National Aquatics Centre Features

Highlights
Originally used in the aviation industry, then increasingly as a building material in Europe, ETFE allows more light and heat penetration than traditional glass, resulting in a 30 per cent decrease in energy costs. With a 17,000 person capacity, the 79,532sqm water cube is the largest ETFE structure in the world.The design blends aesthetic sensibilities with environmental practicality. In addition to saving energy through virtue of its decreased requirement for light and heat, the ETFE membrane cleans itself. Dust and dirt does not cling to the substance, and is said to wash away with rain. The outer surface and roof facade can collect 10,000 tons of rain water, 70,000 tons of clean water and 60,000 tons of swimming pool water annually. In total, the venue is expected to save 140,000 tons of recycled water annually.
