Home > Winners > #57012


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Wanda Chongqing Velodrome

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Cycling Sports

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration was drawn from Chinese lanterns, an old handicrafts work. Every lantern festival, people hang up red lanterns to celebrate family reunion and create a happy atmosphere. The outer material of the Velodrome was PC, and the form of a saddle was a response to the necessity of the cycling track. The skin changes colour according to the game. A shape of lightness looks like a cloud, and the soft colour of outer walls eliminates the spatial pressure of the architecture on surroundings.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This architecture is intended to be one of the most important sports facilities in Chongqing, also a landmark of the city. We attempted to make possible an architecture of modern creation and inspiration, and this does not mean we failed to consider a sense of traditional Chinese features. The Velodrome could accommodate 6000 audiences at most. The wooden cycling track indoor has a length of 250 metres. After completion, it could serve the highest standards of UCI competitions.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The overall planning of the site not only highlights the main body of facilities and fields of extreme sports, but also announces the multiplicity of the central park. During non-game period, the park is open to all citizens, thus providing a friendly local community. The idea of the planning is the combination of vitality and tranquility. The site has an axis cutting through the Velodrome, separating the vitality area of commercial walks of sports culture, roller skating and extreme sports field, BMX sports field, and exhibition centre, as well as the tranquility area of athletes apartment and pub valley.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project is located in Chongqing, and the design was finished in 2016. The project is expected to be completed in the coming few years.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Specifically a cable net structure makes a light roof because the steel cable is not heavy, so there is no need to use large lifting equipments in the construction of the roof.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The Velodrome covers a total area of 32000 square metres, with three floors above the ground, which could accommodate 6000 audiences, and also meet the requirements of UCI games. The dome has a light cable net structure. It reaches 150 metres in length and 120 metres in width. The cycling track has a total length of 250 metres. The safe speed of athletes in game ranges from 85km/h to 110km/h. The slope angle of the whole track is between 13 to 45 degrees, and the angle has a gradual change, so the precision of construction is highly demanded, which is also a technical difficulty of this project.

TAGS:
Velodrome, Chongqing, Light Structure, Modern, Traditional

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The design of the architecture was first based on a previous academic work of collecting, analyzing, and comparing built Velodrome precedents worldwide, and then a deep and thorough study of requirements of all categories of relevant games. Besides being functional, we also considered local natural environment and cultural geography of the region, so we made use of elements of local culture and traditions in the creation of modern architecture. Furthermore, the design also took into account the sustainable tactics as a response to the idea of being environmentally friendly and energy saving.

CHALLENGE:
The highest safe speed on the track ranges from 85km/h to 110km/h, and the slope the surface is between 13 degrees to 45 degrees. There is a continual change of the slope angle of the whole track, so the precision of the construction is highly demanded.
