Like the so-called Bird’s Nest,’ The Egg.” As this bulbous glass-draped opera house is called,might cause passersby to think yet another spaceship has landed in the capital-this one near Tian’anmen square. Indeed,its close proximity to the Forbidden City and the Monument to the People’s Heroes coupled with its un-feng shui design and soaring costs($324.6 million) have earned it the sort of hostile welcome reserved for an alien invasion.
