The main Table Tennis stadium is located on the prominent corner of the 116-acre Eco park. As a legacy project, the stadium is both a sports arena and a concert hall after the Games. We designed this hybrid concept with a cutting-edge innovative suspen-dome roof and a large-scale diagrid facade. The Stadium has renewable materials, sustainable design, and an energy saving system,
responding to the governments‘s Sponge City concept.
For the massing of the building, we found the traditional Cong a great inspiration. These unusual jade tube-shaped objects consist of 2 intersecting volumes, leading to the Body in Body Concept. After an extensive form analysis, we created an optimized modulation for the stadium of a Body [sports arena] in a body [all public functions], a beautiful intersection of shapes. The Brass shingle volume is intersected by a diagrid and glass volume, creating an imposing shape on the landscaped entrance square.
