CHALLENGE
The architectural centerpiece of Hangzhou Asian Games 2022 Park is the 377,000 sf Table Tennis Stadium with 6,500 seats. We designed this hybrid inspired by the heritage of this region, the Cong, in order to become a destination not only for the Games themselves, but for residents and guests from around Asia long after they end.

INNOVATION
Starting with a geometry inspired by the Cong, an ancient Hangzhou jade-stone artifact that takes the shape of a square tube with a circular bore, Archi-Tectonics used a parametric design process that optimized this shape to allow the stadium to efficiently convert from a sports arena to a performance venue. The process generated multiple iterations based on input criteria that optimized the stadium for both arena and concert hall seating. Using the 3D digital design process, Archi-Tectonics was also able to achieve the complex steel & glass diagrid facade with as few unique modules as possible, making for efficient coordination with international fabricators and construction teams. The 5000 brass shingle were modulated in just 85 variations, optimizing this building's double curved intersected volumes.

IMPACT
The hybrid stadium & concert hall—in tandem with supporting spaces like restaurants, VIP lounges, and retail areas throughout the building—creates a layered and dynamic environment: more than just a container for viewing sports or performances, the building serves as a fully-equipped events and entertainment destination.
