Besides a sports infrastructure, the velodrome was also intended to be a landmark of Chongqing. The recognisable form alone made this goal. The architect drew inspiration from lanterns, a handicraft heritage of China, and successfully combined this conception with requirements of a modern sports venue. The Velodrome has an exciting indoor atmosphere created both by 6000 spectators in maximum and athletes racing on a precisely-fabricated wooden track. The attractive outer appearance was realised by advanced net-cable structure, thus making it the centre of the place where people could gather.
