The stadium’s new bamboo gallery replaces the original stands, which provide villagers and tourists with a place to shelter from the wind and rain. The design uses the toughness of traditional bamboo materials and combines the traditional bamboo weaving technique with the beauty of Changqi village. The cantilever structure is more naturally cantilevered from the side of the stand, so that the viewing direction of the audience is not late to avoid blocking the line of sight and impact on people. basketball activities. At the same time, several umbrella-shaped cantilever structures are connected to each other, and the space between the “umbrellas” makes the view more transparent, connecting the view of the stadium and the pond. The covering of the “umbrella” is woven and can transmit light. Light and shadow show the beauty of structure and technology. At the time of design, the diameter of the umbrella surface was 7 meters, and the cantilevered three-dimensional two-dimensional curved surface achieved greater reach of the bamboo umbrella and achieved the structural integration of the skin.

Before construction, the two-dimensional curve was used to adapt to the three-dimensional two-dimensional curved surface cantilever structure to achieve two-dimensional and flat construction, which is more conducive to the popularization and application of the original bamboo project. During the construction, the traditional craftsmen of the old village were mobilized to participate in the construction. The volunteer student construction team from the School of Architecture at the University of Science and Technology also participated in the joint construction. In addition, the villagers spontaneously participated in the learning and co-construction of bamboo weaving, so that the process of rural revitalization and construction formed a multi-participation process and exciting new vitality.
