    • Synopsis
    • BIRD'S NEST - HERZOG & DE MEURON IN CHINA. Building between two cultures, two architectural traditions and two political systems: the documentary by Christoph Schaub and Michael Schindhelm shows two very different building projects in China by the Basle-based star architects Herzog and de Meuron: the National Stadium for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing and an entire district in the town of Jinhua. One is tailored to China's international appearance; the other caters for the daily needs of the population.
