Changji Stadium

The matrix of individual square modules gestures as a powerful and indivisible entity that follows a certain geometric order. It reinterpreted the traditional pattern of Islam architecture in a modern manner as well as creates large-span spaces to satisfy the requirements of sports games. Detailing selected and abstracted from the symbols on local Uyghur buildings, creates an indigenous feature for the native Uyghur people. The subtle contrast of the rough and smooth texture on each granite panel creates ample details under the sunlight, while the diamond-shaped pattern is also referenced from the native buildings.
