The white lotus on the riverside is passionate.
Hangzhou Olympic Sports Center, located on the south bank of Qiantang River in Hangzhou and east of Qianjiang Third Bridge, includes a main stadium for 80,000 people, a stadium for 18,000 people, tennis center, small ball center and other venues. It is one of the largest sports centers in the country.

Form: Petal Blooming River Bank
The “organic” design of the Olympic Sports Center is inspired by the lotus flower in nature. The shape is dynamic and elegant, consisting of 28 large petals and 27 small petals. The shape of the venue is based on petals, and the texture of translucent white petals is derived from the texture of silk weaving, which is noble and lively.
The architect hopes that the petal-shaped outer skin can seek a contextual echo while providing natural ventilation. The petal-shaped outer skin is decomposed into a series of interconnected parts, which are both maintenance structures and load-bearing structures, realizing the perfect organic combination of form and function.

Show the Beauty of Structure
The design of Hangzhou Olympic Sports Center introduces various software based on BIM technology (a data-based tool applied to engineering design, construction and management). From the sketch conceived by the architect to the parametric design of the shape of the petals, to the comparison and adjustment of the number of petals, until the completion of the final plan, it is all completed in the environment of the modeling software, which achieves fast, intuitive and accurate high synchronization.
The stand area of the main stadium of the Hangzhou Olympic Sports Center is covered with a complete cantilevered canopy with a ring-shaped petal-shaped steel structure. Combining the complex appearance with the heavy structure ingeniously, it achieves the effect of light and concise appearance, solid and powerful structure, and vividly shows the beauty of the structure.

Create a New Urban Area
Hangzhou Olympic Sports Center will not only host the main venue area for national or intercontinental sports events, but also a modern large-scale convention and exhibition center for large-scale exhibitions at home and abroad. At the same time, it will combine the construction of the two centers to create a “sports port” with Hangzhou characteristics, forming a new urban area with sports and expo functions as its main functions, integrating business, tourism, leisure, culture and residential functions.
Hangzhou Olympic Sports Center will not only provide top-level event services as a sports center, but also act as the “green core” of the city to drive the implementation of Hangzhou’s strategy of “city expansion to the east, tourism to the west, development along the river, and development across the river”. Sharing a “city of quality of life” comparable to world-famous cities will lay a solid foundation and bring a better tomorrow to urban residents.
