The sports center, which is designed for the Asian Games' shooting, archery and modern pentathlon competitions, was noted for its light and shadow effects in the sunshine, bringing out the dynamic beauty of sports.
The center was inspired by the masterpiece Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains and blends in perfectly with the surrounding natural landscapes.
The roof of the venue is shaped like a herringbone curved surface to resemble a mountain. In addition, 34,000 rotating aluminum alloy louvers were installed on the venu's east and south curtain walls, allowing for changes to the facade.
