Sports Park in Quzhou Cappacity: 30,000 spectators Location: Zhejiang, Hangzhou, China
The notion of nature in the East, intricately linked with the nurturing of the spirit, gives birth to a vision of a city devoted to the emotional well-being of its residents. Staying true to this philosophy, Ma Yansong’s Beijing-based studio envisions a sports park where structures appear to sprout organically from the earth or seamlessly merge into it. This design approach aims to cultivate a poetic and futuristic landscape, a verdant oasis nestled in the heart of the bustling city.
At the core of this conceptualization is the stadium, serving as the focal point in the composition. Gradually revealing itself through various pathways, the stadium takes on the form of a luminous, levitating structure that symbolizes the harmonious connection between the terrestrial and celestial realms. In this innovative design, the boundaries between the built environment and the natural world blur, offering a unique and immersive experience for city dwellers seeking solace in the midst of urban dynamism.
