Bozhou Sports Stadium

The concept is based upon the idea of a traditional Chinese private garden. It is a sacred place which is framed to create a space of significance. The idea that this private garden can be interpreted as a public space which can be cherished by the people, not only those who use the building, but also those who want a recreational space, somewhere to retreat from the stresses and anxieties of the City, or somewhere that can have a focus on health, wellbeing, and the benefits of enjoyment of a quality outdoor space.

The site is framed by a linear park of mature woodland, which has to be entered by users on approach to the site. Within this opening in the woodland is a calm, quiet open space, with a jewel, or pearl like building as its heart.

The use of local Chinese traditional geometric patterns as a reference to context, allows for a further layer of significance, with the landscaping and the building position being dictated by, but remaining flexible to, the order and symmetry that is shown within these patterns.

Playing with the levels within the site, it is possible to create a clear separation of how users approach the building with all spectator arrival within the landscaped urban space, through a clerestory glazed level which the solid building hovers above, and building users, servicing, and sports participants approaching to a lower sub-level by means of a processional ramp, integrated in to the landscape. This approach is visually separated from the upper building to enhance this separation.

建筑的形体的比例与大小再一次强调了传统中国建筑中窗棂的图案。 建筑的造型采用干净简单纯净的几何体,表现出徽派建筑中白墙灰瓦的沉稳简洁与低调。 由于一层的建筑外立面采用退入式透视玻璃,建筑的体块像是悬浮在广场的正中央。体块的轻盈向不同的人群发出温切的邀请。

从视觉上建筑体块由广场层上下两部分分开,在人体的视线高度虚化建筑的实面,从而将周边的绿化树林引入建筑中, 并加强建筑的浮动概念。
