Emphasizing the connection of each building, the layout arranges the sports buildings and relative facilities integrated with the existing topography. The stadium, gymnasium and natatorium ring around three little hills from north to south and compose an organic architectural space sequence according to a curved axis. The ceilings are connected as a whole which looks like a silver dragon dancing among the hills from above. Designers engineered the stadium with arc centering structure, while the gymnasium and natatorium are supported by grid structure.
