Redevelopment Sports Oasis Center Shenzhen
LOLA Landscape Architects designed in conjunction with Long Chase the winning proposal for the redevelopment of Shenzhen stadium area, the Sports Oasis Centre. With our landscape design, we focus on transforming the Shenzhen stadium area into a lush environment, with a maximum amount of trees that will frame the site and enhance the surrounding buildings. It will be an important human connector for the site, providing an accessible and pleasant experience to those who transit the area. With green sport and cultural activities for everyone, the renewed Sports Oasis Centre becomes the green corridor of the city.
The Shenzhen stadium has always been a cultural landmark of the city. The grand and solid buildings were developed and built by the municipality in 1985. Since then, the gymnasium has been able to hold a wide variety of domestic and foreign sports competitions, artistic performances, and some comprehensive activities. The silvery-white building with the green Bijia Mountain against the background became part of the collective memory of a generation of Shenzhen residents.
The future Shenzhen stadium will be open to the public at multiple levels and in an all-around way, providing quality services. It has provided the conditions for strengthening the sports exchanges between the Special Administrative Region and Hong Kong, Macao, mainland, and foreign countries. The location will play an active role in promoting the development of sports, economic construction, and spiritual development. In our landscape design, we take into account that the outer open spaces are equivalent to the stadium. It will be used as an outdoor living room for Shenzhen, a concentrated area for multiple activities.
