The main purpose of Beijiao Sports Center is to serve the surrounding neighbourhoods, thus it was extremely important to design it as a multi-functional and friendly place. The typical image of traditional sports architecture is abandoned, in place for an activity space full of energy during or after sports events, both day and night. The intent of the architecture is to create a community space for activity, one that enlivens its immediate vicinities.
