If it is a "real" stadium it's too big

fantastico!
Although both serve different functions, I would imagine visitors would be in awe to see them in these two great cities of the past and future respectively.

Actually, the pictures are taken from the same height, at 300 meters.

Hi all.

Looks like they are pouring concrete for something. I guess it may be for a base for a tower crane. They break the pile caps to expose the rebar so it will tie into the rebar they lay for the raft. The ground looks to be levelled in that area so they may be pouring blinding. It will be a long process to get all the piles ready so they can start laying rebar. Great to see this foundation work for this great project. Boring to some but to me it's like reading the first pages of a book - just as important as the rest of the book.

Fantastic design.

kinda cool to see that they are using an octogon for the base. Traditional Chinese building incorporated in a futuristic design.

Hopefully the process of breaking all the piles and laying the rebar for the raft will be done quickly enough. Can't wait to see this rise!
