In collaboration with the Design Institute of South China University of Technology, EC3's design features a green, urban campus with numerous buildings of different scales and materials.

The buildings are organized by programmatic anchors including the Performing Arts and Black Box Theaters, swimming pools, and a multi-functional hall. The rest of the site features a series of connectors, including the community center, which links the library to exhibition galleries at the cultural center, and a multi-level atrium space which connects to a multitude of recreational areas.

According to the architects, The Dalang Cultural & Sports Center "pays homage to traditional Chinese landscape painting by touching upon solid and void, opaque and transparent compositions in order to achieve an ephemeral character."
