Shougang Big Air is located at the southwest corner of Shougang Qunming Lake. The construction has been completed on 31st October 2019. It is the only new outdoor sports venue in the city for snow sports for the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics. With the four cooling towers built from 1970s to 90s sitting as landscape background, and using the old oxygen factory as service area, the beauty and power of industrial heritage is fully embedded in Shougang Big Air.
Shougang Big Air is the first permanent venue for Big Air in the world. For its uniqueness, we input traditional Chinese elements into architecture, also pursuing an innovative structural system in accordance with the spirit of Olympics.
For the development of this sport, Shougang Big Air is an important milestone and model, and its design parameters will serve as an important reference for future Big Air venues. As a post-game legacy, it will host all sorts of events and provide training opportunities for young athletes.
The venue will serve two different sports in the future, we work intensively on the possibility to transform the profiles between Big Air and Aerials. It reflects the highest level of science and technology of Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games, also provides a channel for the public to be more familiar with snow sports, that is the social value of a city venue we all desire.
