Here are a few shots of Herzog & de Meuron's National Stadium in Beijing, China by architectural photographer Iwan Baan. Update: this project is included in Dezeen Book of Ideas, which is on sale now for £12.
The stadium, completed in March, will host track and field events and the opening and closing ceremonies of the Beijing Olympic Games from 8-24 August.
