2014 Winter Olympic Stadium Seems Designed By Insectoid Aliens

Don't get me wrong. I think the 2014 Winter Olympics Stadium in Sochi, Russia, will look absolutely spectacular at night. It's just that its translucent skin makes me a little bit itchy, because it makes me think of insect nests.

Not that I've seen many insect nests, but that's how I imagine them in my nightmares. The stadium will use a not-yet-disclosed, lightweight, translucent crystalline skin. [Populous via World Architecture News via Inhabitat]
