‘Three rounds’, the core group of the masterplan, is formed by uniting the stadium, gymnasium and swimming pool, which strongly reinforces the area as iconic.

‘One band’ consists of the comprehensive facilities hall as the skeleton, bonded together by the sports park. The layout, architecture and landscape are united in a wellbalanced way to create this unique area in the city. Source by rmjm.
