This wonderful building hosted the Summer Olympic Games in China 6 years ago. It’s distinctive stadium design is well-known around the world. It’s a fun fact that the Italian Football Federation have chosen this stadium to host the final games of the Italian football cup tournament for several consecutive years. It’s also known as ‘The bird’s nest’.

Postman Cheval’s Ideal Palace in Hauterives is one of France’s queerest attractions. The palace was built between 1879 and 1912 by a French postman, Ferdinan Cheval. The design was influenced by the Egyptian and Hindu mythology. An interesting fact is that the north facade is decorated with a lot of different animals.

Container City is a series of shipping container architecture and a trademark of “Urban Space Management”. It is principally a means of utilising standard forty-foot equivalent unit shipping containers, at the end of their life, to produce flexible accommodation and offices at low cost.
This building is composed of many shipping containers laid one over another. The main purpose of this building is to offer flexible accommodation and offices at affordable prices. If you are ever going to live there, I advise you to call the AB Cleaning Now London experts.
