Project DescriptionFrom the architect:
Stadiums have significant impact on cities because of their size. We have created a harmonious and fluid design that speaks to the civic aspect of sports architecture, one in which the local community can take great pride in. The building geometry is minimal, creating a sense of abstract artistry that is individual. The design merges multiple complex programs into a singular vision that is bold. The final composition, with its undulating geometry (emulating the forces of nature), is reminiscent of mountains, rivers and cloud forms. The building aligns Hwaseong beside other great cities by providing an exciting civic landmark.
The site is surrounded by subtle and undulating mountains that create a natural backdrop for Hwaseoung Stadium. A source of inspiration for the main building, they also inspire the landscape. A critical component to the design of the master plan, it reflects the same harmony and fluidity with nature as the rest of the project. The building and landscape take their cue from each other and the natural setting beyond.
