Hangzhou Sports Park – China
Great designs and awesome concepts are born every day and in all the corners of the world. So one would say that with a big population it’s impossible not to see new concepts and proposals. The park that you will see in the following images is the “baby” of two prestigious architecture bureaus and the main attraction of the park as you can see in the first picture we provided will be the stadium, which is in fact the biggest to be build in the next 10 years in China.
NBBJ with CCDI, have created the Hangzhou Sports Park: A vibrant, pedestrian-centric sports and recreation development located in the midst of Hangzhou’s new urban environment. Situated on the Qian Tang riverfront opposite of the new Central Business District, and encompassing a site of approximately 400,000 square meters, the sports park is seen as an opportunity for creating picturesque and sustainable public spaces that are often elusive in the newly constructed urbanism of China. This new place making will be accomplished while intelligently balancing the long-term commercial viability of the sports development.
The primary architectural element on the site is the 80,000-seat Main Stadium. The Olympic-sized facility will be the premier international sports venue for the city of Hangzhou, and is currently the largest stadium planned for construction in China for the next ten years.
