In terms of the number of athletes who take part, the summer World University Games is worldwide second only to the summer Olympics as a multisport occasion. The site has a great number of sporting facilities, matching the enormous growth of the city in the Pearl River delta.

The design is inspired by the surrounding undulating landscape. This enables topographical modulation in the sports center area, with flows of people on various levels. An artificial lake connects the stadium at the foot of the mountain with the circular multifunctional hall in the north and the rectangular swimming hall west thereof. The central sports plaza is accessed via a raised promenade from the individual stadia. Two 150 m tall buildings forming the service centre round off the sports complex in the north. Design concept The overall complex is laid out as an extensive landscaped park with typical elements of a traditional Chinese garden. Watercourses and plants symbolize movement and development, while crystalline structures in the form of stones and rocks represent continuity and stability. The dialogue between the fluid landscape shapes and
