Text description provided by the architects. The Ronald McDonald Centre is a special sport complex designed in a way that the disabled children can focus on what they can, everyone here is champion.

The terrain and buildings are grandstand and sports function at the same time. 
Everyone here is both athlete and audience.

The center of the complex is the clubhouse, which is wedged between the two oval arenas, which are sunk in the elevated terrain and surrounded by trees and grandstand stairs.

The clubhouse is for parents and children to meet, to eat and drink, watch movies and play. The clubhouse offers views of all outdoor and indoor activities. A clubhouse and grandstand in one.

The clubhouse, trees and grandstand stairs around the arenas provide a sense of an ever-present audience.

The Centre is built according to the guidelines of NOC * NSF.
