Instinct Fabrication：The project is a renovation and redevelopment of old stadiums facilities and their adjacent spaces. Banan District, where the project is located, is one of the core nine districts in south of Chongqing Metropolitan. The site covers an area of about 300000 square meters, neighboring the Yudong Yangtze River Bridge in the north and connecting the Yudong Station, the transfer hub between Subway Line 2 and Line 3 in the south. Contradictorily, high living density occupies the surrounding while scarce qualitied urban realm were available to them, for a long time.
从老旧体育场馆，到潮流运动商业场域 Abandoned sports facilities to new urban vibe
场地中两座保留下来的大型公共设施 – 巴南体育场和巴南篮球馆，始建于八九十年代，曾经是重庆市南郊的重要地标之一，后几经闲置，接近于遗弃状态，导致体育场以及周边公共空间品质的衰败。该项目翻新重建的初衷，就是结合新型商业内容和生活方式，通过城市更新空间重塑的手段，让体育场馆，周边公共空间以及居民生活重焕活力，重塑城市地标。
Banan Coliseum and Banan Basketball Stadium, the two large-scale public facilities preserved in the site, were built in the 80s and 90s and were once one of the landmarks in the southern suburbs of Chongqing. After years they became nothing but just abandoned aged buildings with inaccessible and unpleasant public space around. The goal of this project is to reactivate vivid lifestyles and recreate more vibing destinations for residents around, by peacing fragmental space and integrating refreshness from new commercial establishment and recreational programs.
▼项目区位 The project location
The first step of the renovation scheme is creating a promenade to connect the north and south ends. One side is next to a large residential area, and the other is directly connected to the exit of Yudong subway station. In a way, the promenade automatically brings in people more conveniently and effectively, forming a central pedestrian corridor about 30 meters wide and 500 meters long.
The new-built second-floor subway plaza has transformed the south portion of the site into a multi-level space for residents’ daily sports and leisure activities, while the introduction of a new basketball stadium with a capacity of 20, 000 seats in the east and the staggered commercial complex -‘Hi-Up’ on the north side, are able to establish an anticipated one-stop shopping experience and a place for large events.
▼功能布局 Function layout
The project is featured in sports and recreation activities, comprised of BLOOMAGE Stadium(new built), M-Zone, Hi-Park Street Basketball courts(refurbished from Banan Stadium), Hi-Zone(refurbished from Banan Coliseum) and Hi-Up Commercial Complex. The combination is able to hold NBA games, hockey games, concerts and other large events.

“老重庆”的底色与质感 Integrate Chongqing Vernacular
Different from typical new-built urban projects, our landscape planning and design intends to maintain the original and authentic characteristics of Banan in Chongqing, and the choice of site texture focuses on reflecting the colorness, solidness and topography of the mountainous city and the old town. Meanwhile, the heat and passion in sports activities are injected into the site with visible colorful landscape elements.

With that context, we prefer to have coarser and more monolithic materials to cover most of the site. Eventually, the exposed aggregate concrete with ceramic decorations were chosen as the main hardscape materials. The new stadium facade was renovated with the artistic-pattern steel frame, which works well with the rails of cable tram, as they share and express a solid + subtle industrial style.

体育文化生活的传承延续 Reinforce Sports Tradition
Not only we considered the oversized space for large commercial/sports events, but also it is our stronger intention to inherit the sports traditions and offer more of free and open sports space for people to participate in outdoor activities, in addition to the original facilities. The site makes full use of the lower space under the upper plaza connecting the subway station, which sets up a flexible space for the skateboard field and the rock climbing wall. Across the space, a HI-PARK street basketball court is embraced by the old Banan Basketball Hall and the subway platform, allowing great audience views from space along the perimeters above.

潮玩活力的融合绽放 Addition of New Urban Dynamics
If the soul of the original site is sports, the new commercial establishment on north side is like a catalyst to fuse retail experience and recreational sports together. And the commercial vibe here is not only a trading scene interiorly, but also an extension to the landscape outdoor space. The design conceived of several plazas that can hold more than 5000 people at the same time, and the newly added catering space at the perimeter of the original coliseum. By doing that, the experiences are able to extend outward from the Hi-Up commercial complex in the north and connect with the transition to the sports space in the south.
Due to the size of the site, we hope to give people clear and hinted guidance and convenience in circulation. On the ground, the four-color stripe of Bloomage brand is used as the ground guide, running through most spaces. At the same time, a cable train is running in a loop outside the new stadium on the east. It can stop and go as people could be picked up and get off anywhere along the loop. It becomes the most popular feature in the site and the icon of this redevelopment.

结语 Sports in Urban Renovation
Nowadays, urban renovation is no longer a simple space reconfiguration, but also an adaption and integration of new lifestyles based on available resources. The left-over space needs executable resources to be reactivated, and the generation of new industries also requires respect to the tradition and culture of the original site. Physical commerce and retails have gradually transformed from a single trading attribute to a more diverse psychological function, which carries a wider range of life expectations through series of recreated spaces for social and public activity. As people in the nation spend more time on health and sports, increasing shopping malls introduce healthy living and sports experience into their business. On the other hand, large-scale sports infrastructure and space have congenital advantage genes, which can activate the vitality of old urban areas more naturally. “sports + retail + healthy life” probably become a special trend in urban renovation and redevelopment.
