Super-Stadium for the 2022 Winter Olympics by Alan Lu

Alan Lu revealed his proposal, Super-Stadium, for Olympic Complex for Harbin's bid for the 2022 Winter Olympic.

Programs, verticality and typological layers are the core elements to Alan Lu's design proposal.

Typological layers, or typological organizer, defines a robust architectural 'engine'. A project Typological Organizer Skyscraper by Swiss architects Thomas Favre-Bulle, Mathieu Hefti and Simon Potier, explored this typological organizer process. This project was proposed for the edition 2010 of the eVolo Skyscrapers Competition.

According to Favre-Bulle, Hefti and Potier, complexity handling and real-time reactivity capability are added to this engine which, then, set up 'an automated process of spatialization driven by internal typological parameters and external environmental factors.'

This design process appears to allow much more flexibility to the building in terms of not only articulation the inner spaces but also the use of the building.

This appears to be the same design process used for Alan Lu's Super-Stadium. The ground floor is programmed as a cultural landscape with libraries, museums convention halls, and screening rooms.

The layers articulate the interior programs. Thus, one layer features the main sports including four large multiuse arenas, while another one, the upper layer, contains a public promenade that, Alan Lu says, connects through the landscape lines with retail store and cafes.

Users can watch the sporting events from other programs thanks to the connection of layers through shifts in section.

The programs are treated as a vertical tower, as the architect says.

This design process results in a complex character of spaces formed by using this method of typological layers. It also allows for a reuse of the building for diverse programs once the sporting events are over.

These layers, be they vertical or horizontal, allow natural light to be diffused inside the building, just like fissures.
