A cracking theatre is born as the Egg hatches

Abstract:
A further delay came when costs and safety were reviewed after the new terminal at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris - also designed by Mr Andreu - collapsed in 2004. Next came the challenge of keeping the titanium and glass shell shining in a city that is heavily polluted and hit by dust storms from the Gobi desert. Mr Wang said: "We can wash off the dust but the bird droppings are really troublesome." Cleaners will tackle the titanium roof and a nanotechnology film that covers the glass will dissolve droppings and dust.
