The new sports precinct houses one main stadium, a natatorium and a multipurpose hall located amidst a green park landscape. The curved roofs and curved forms soften the buildings’ dimensions and embrace the traditional Chinese pavilion heritage.
The open roof in the main stadium was designed as a single layer radial ring-cable system structurally stable by a three-dimensional undulated shape. The swimming hall is roofed by a single-layer bi-directional cable-net structure in saddle surface form with 110m diameter; the enclosed multipurpose venue follows a similar structural design, however designed as a steel roof structure of 150m diameter. All buildings are supported by V-shaped columns at their outer rim.
