Ai Weiwei Interlacing a Bird’s Nest
Ai Weiwei is a worldwide known brand in the art business including the successful architectural practice FAKE Design. In 2003 he collaborated with celebrated worldwide architectural brand Herzog&DeMeuron for the design of the Bird’s Nest, Beijing’s iconic National Stadion. Although Ai Weiwei boycotted the Olympic Games as a protest ageinst the Government’s illiberal attitude, the Stadion was a great success, one of the most significant architectural works in recent years. Four years after the artist will be present also in the London Olympics, again together with Herzog&DeMeuron, to design the Summer pavillion of the Serpentine Gallery, a must for every architect in town, almost as important as the Pritzker Price.
