Text description provided by the architects. The Taiyuan Tourism College Gym is the newly-built venue of the Volleyball competition (Women's U15 Club Group) of the 2nd National Youth Games of China, which is located in the northeastern part of the Taiyuan Tourism College campus. The whole design progress was directed by CUI Kai, the Chief Architect of CADG, who is also an academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering, as well as JING Quan being the team leader, who is the president of Architecture Design & Research Institute I of CADG. It merely took two years for the entire project cycle.

In order to make good use of the legacy of the game, and meet the potential requirement of being open to the public, the preliminary conception is to create a pure and simple sectional space - the main part of the arena is a single large place, which ensures the probability of flexible utilization after the game.

Elevation along with section, forms along with ambition
The building facades directly show the organization of the internal functional space, exposing the architects' intuitive understanding of the inside activities and events, as well as an ambition to assisting in the recognition and interaction for the users. The consistency with the exterior greatly promotes the identity of the building.

Temporary partition, many options
The demountable acoustic barrier and the temporary fences reduce the interference of the various areas during the game. Motorized roller shades, electrical telescopic grandstands, moveable court mat and demountable stage lighting systems together provide a 3,000 sq. meter hall flexible with 11 layouts of sport courts for the college teachers and students, which is in line with the latest development trend of sports architecture.

Arched roof, forms of rhythm
The top half of the building is a sloping roof, composed of 12 arches, each of which has a rhombic side view. The base surfaces are all cylindrical surfaces or conical surfaces, instead of common NURBS surfaces, which facilitating the following step of panelization. The combination of multiple-use frustum pedestals and the arched roof fill the building with the beauty of geometric composition and the spirits of sports architecture.

Durable and unadorned building materials
Fair-faced concrete structure with 240-360mm spacing stripes and fair-faced red bricks save the cost and shorten the construction time while conveying the concept of the simplicity. In addition to the curved metal roof supported by arched steel trusses, it displays the overall harmony of the structure and form.
