By contrast to the Table Tennis Stadium, we designed the other node of our Asian Games 2022 Master Plan as a lightweight and diaphanous wing. The Field Hockey Stadium is comprised of a kite-like roof as a luminous weather and sun canopy above the entrance building and the seating area. The hockey field is integrated into the surrounding park landscape and thus naturally translates between the geometric turf of the playing field and the surrounding hills.

We found the traditional Chinese Bamboo Umbrella a great inspiration for the design of the light-weight 125m-long stadium roof, soaring above the 5,000 seat stadium. A balance between iconic and woven into the fabric of the development, the roof is primarily supported by two long-span trusses, braced together by secondary framing which supports lightweight roof purlins and an ETFE membrane. The generous roof has built-in LED lighting, allowing for outdoor music and theatre events after the Games.
