BEIJING OLYMPIC WRESTLING CENTRE
The new gymnasium for the Beijing Olympics is part of an existing University campus. The venue is designed for a capacity of 10,000 in Olympic mode. The form of the building is a clear expression of the structure grandstand and roof support system.
A large patterned glass arrival hall provides a grand entry and address to the tree lined courtyard. The design is planned to leave a legacy venue with 6,000 seats. The 4,000 temporary seats are to be reused post Olympics, for a new adjacent grandstand. This is one of the ESD initiatives employed in the design of the venue.
