Due to the fact that the main purpose of Beijiao Sports Center in China, designed by Decode Urbanism Office, is to serve people and surrounding neighborhoods, it was of crucial importance to design it as a multi-functional and friendly, gathering place. The traditional concept and the image of the sport facility are abandoned, in favor to a vivid, active space full of energy night and day, both during sport events and after. The aim of the architects was to create a community space for higher social resilience.

The divergent general layout creates a base and city with permeable interface between the site and the existing, surrounding urban context, and activity venues of various sizes are formed.  Created spaces differ in height; therefore allow the host wide range of outdoor activities.

This amusing and playful design is unifying in its concept and it brings together separate spaces into one, through a central “event” – the valley. The design also introduces the rising trend of ecological architecture. The valley is the center of all the activities, moderately sized sport field is located in one side of the central gathering place and is utilized both as a field for sport activities and outdoor performance venue. The platform of the valley is extended outwards so that it became a roof and formed the auditorium. Great porosity of the geometry of the valley allows it to be adaptable and to create flexible multi-purpose spaces for different events, such as shopping, performing, lecture and exercise. The ground level of the park provides the development with a pleasant environment for the hot summer days.
