Water Cube - the World'S Largest Etfe Application Project

DESCRIPTION

The Water Cube (Beijing, China) is one of the famous sport center build with ETFE membrane material. 

In July 2003. Australian architect PTW and engineering firm OVE Arup won a contract to design and build the 2008 Olympic National Swimming Center in Beijing. 

The $140 million landmark project, nicknamed the "Water Cube, " began construction in December 2003 and was completed in January 2008. The 80, 000-square-meter area is located opposite the main stadium in the Olympic Green Zone, which is located at the northern end of the Olympic Green Zone. The north-south axis of Beijing. 

The project's design uses water as a structural theme and theme, and is associated with important blocks in Chinese tradition and mythology. During the day, Water Cube shines as a blue transparent landscape, and after sunset, it is a crystal construction with LED lit bubbles. 

Conceptually, square box and interior space are carved from a set of undefined foam bubbles, symbolizing the transformation of natural conditions into cultural conditions. The overall appearance of the aquatic center is a cube of water molecules. 

“The Water Cube has more than 4. 000 ETFE pillows, largest of which is 9 meters in diameter. ”

Sydney-based architect PTW and engineering group OVE Arup worked with China Construction Engineering Corporation (CSCEC) and CSCEC Shenzhen Design Institute (CSCEC + DESIGN) to design the Water Cube. 

In addition to providing a multi-purpose water sports centre, briefing also requires extensive use of digital technology, energy and water conservation methods, and the integration of new construction materials. 

According to proposals from ten countries including China, United States, Japan, United Kingdom and Germany, three designs were included in the shortlist for the design competition. These were submitted by Chinese architects, Shanghai Modern Architectural Design Company, Rafael Vinoly Architects of the United States and subsequent Sino-Australian cooperation design. 

The winning Water Cube is the focal point of the swimming centre, with 176 meters on each side and a height of 31 meters. It has 6. 000 permanent seats and can accommodate 11. 000 temporary seats to accommodate the Olympic audience.
