The new Wuyuanhe Stadium is situated at the southern island of Hainan, China. The building provides seats for more than 41,000 visitors and was developed on an extremely fast project schedule with a construction time of 15 month only. The iconic building was designed to blend into the surrounding architectural, cultural and costal landscape of Hainan. The architectural lighting provides a key role of the building’s success, enhancing visually the flowy and dynamic as well as the solid structures. Light contributes to subconscious wayfinding tasks for spectators and allows communication with the city via a low-resolution media component.
