NBBJ and CCDI break ground on Hangzhou Sports Park

Work has begun on the new Hangzhou Sports Park in China, a pedestrian-centric sports and recreation development designed by NBBJ in collaboration and partnership with CCDI. The 400,000m² site is situated on the Qian Tang riverfront opposite the city’s new central business district (CBD). New construction has tripled the city’s size in the past 10 years.

“The issue is not about how to sustain a large stadium commercially between games, but about how a massive stadium can lead a two million square metre mixed-use commercial programme in a green park setting, form a future urban centre, and redefine a new lifestyle,” said Hu Xiaoming, design director of CCDI’s sports division.

The primary architectural element on the site is the 80,000-seat Main Stadium, which is scheduled for completion in 2013. The Olympic-sized facility will be the premier international sports venue for the city of Hangzhou. The stadium’s exterior shell is inspired by the flora found on the banks of Hangzhou’s West Lake, and was chosen in order to create a powerful and unique image for the fast-growing Qian Tang riverfront. At the north end of the stadium, the seating bowl opens to reveal a view of the Yangtze riverfront, connecting sporting events to Hangzhou’s new CBD.

The site also features the above-grade ‘sports boulevard’ platform, which links the main stadium with other components, such as tennis tournament facilities. On the ground level, pathways, gardens and plazas form a network of public recreation activities designed for alternative and extreme sports. Sunken spaces and courtyards lead to an extensive below-grade retail facility containing boutique stores, restaurants and a multiplex cinema. The site is designed to create a seamless pedestrian experience that weaves together sports and commercial programmes, while forming a clear path of circulation between two planned major transportation hubs on the east and west ends of the site.
