WCW’s Summertime Blues: The Great American Bash & Bash At The Beach

I remember my summer days as a youth: sleeping late during the week, playing outside (after being told to go outside while watching TV and playing video games, of course), going to the coast to check out the beach, and the fireworks on the Fourth of July.  As a young wrestling fan, the months of June through August had three summer-themed pay-per-views to watch for my viewing pleasure.  While SummerSlam was WWE’s only summer-themed PPV, WCW had two, back-to-back, summer-themed pay-per-views: The Great American Back in June and Bash At The Beach in July.   Continue reading “WCW’s Summertime Blues: The Great American Bash & Bash At The Beach”

This Musical Olympic Structure Looks Like Superman’s Fortress of Solitude

However, this building also looks like bloody shards of glass, as possibly Gulliver himself my have died after he fell directly on top of it.  Also, this makes this the fourth building erected for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London that has been covered on The PractitioNERD (exhibits A, B, & C).  The Coca-Cola Beatbox, designed by Asif Khan and Pernilla Ohrstedt, is a crystalline structure that is more than meets the eye (like Optimus Prime), as it can be played like a musical instrument.   Continue reading “This Musical Olympic Structure Looks Like Superman’s Fortress of Solitude”

Return of the London Olympics: The Summer Game’s Shooting Venue

And now…the long awaited “Part 3” of my “coverage” of works of architecture being erected for the upcoming 2012 Olympic Summer Games that start next month in London. First I covered the nomadic basketball arena, second was the natatorium, and now I’ll be covering the London Olympic Shooting Venue.  This building will accommodate the 10, 25 and 50 m Sport Shooting events for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and after the Summer Games have concluded, the three temporary and mobile buildings will be dismantled (a’la the basketball arena before mentioned) and rebuilt in Glasgow for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.   Continue reading “Return of the London Olympics: The Summer Game’s Shooting Venue”

The London Olympics Strike BACK! The Summer Games’ Aquatic Center

I suppose you can call this “Part II” of my Architectural Series of buildings erected for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London.  I had an earlier post about the recyclable arena almost two months ago.  I will say this though: I cannot guarantee a “Part III;” which kind of sucks because I’m a sucker for a trilogy. Oh well, this is the Olympic Aquatic Center designed … Continue reading The London Olympics Strike BACK! The Summer Games’ Aquatic Center

Look at this Recyclable/Nomadic Arena and KNEEL BEFORE IT!!

I suppose that after the natatorium used in China for the 2008 Summer Olympic Games, the whole “design-your-arena-to-look-inflatable” thing is taking off pretty well with Olympic facilities.  Also, I’m not sure if there are bags or bins large enough to stuff this baby into for recyclables pick-up day during the week. Hmmm…
