Pingshan District in Shenzhen acts as an important node for the eastward development of Shenzhen. However, the eastern part of Shenzhen lacks large-scale cultural and sports complexes and supporting service facilities. The project aims to address the shortcoming of uneven distribution of large-scale cultural and sports facilities in Shenzhen, as well as reaching higher level of national fitness and meeting the recreational and fitness needs of the public. It is proposed to build a sports park featuring "badminton" as the theme, and to construct a National Badminton Training Center integrating practice, scientific research and training.

This project encourages designers to conduct in-depth analyses of site conditions, surrounding environment and target users, and to propose reasonable design schemes. Designers should consider usage scenarios for different groups and various activities, focusing on the technical requirements of National Badminton Training Center, as well as different demands during closed training period for national badminton teams and non-training period, in-season and off-season of sports games. Design proposals should adhere to the following principles:
The design should strictly adhere to the principle of economic practicality, adopt suitable structure forms and materials, and strike a balance between aesthetics and practicality. Designers should thoroughly consider the physical and mental health of professional athletes as well as their training needs from the user's perspective, creating a pleasant and humanized sports environment.
Professionalism in Arena Design
The arena design should consider the requirements of international top-level games for badminton and other sports, providing a professional competition environment and state-of-the-art facilities. The arena should meet the demands of accommodating various large-scale activities, such as competitions, conferences, exhibitions, and performances, to deliver outstanding audio-visual experiences for the audience. In the meanwhile, it should offer convenient services, create a dynamic business atmosphere, increase business value, and promote the integrated development of cultural, sports and tourism industries.
The design should emphasize coordination with the surrounding elements such as city blocks, existing buildings and natural landscapes to create a harmonious relationship. The goal is to cultivate a positive atmosphere for community sports, contributing to the development of high-quality urban public spaces. The sports facilities should meet the sports and cultural activity demands of the surrounding community, establishing a shared platform for national fitness. It is also important to meet the needs of different age groups and interest communities, creating a diversified, pleasant and open environment for community sharing.
