The lights at Gongshu Canal Sports Park Gymnasium have been switched on, illuminating the Hangzhou skyline as the city prepares to host the Asian Games from September 23.

Designed by Winka Dubbeldam of the New York-based architectural firm Archi-Tectonics, it features a hockey field that resembles an oiled paper umbrella and a gymnasium with fish scale-patterned walls.  

Set to host the table tennis, breakdancing and hockey competitions, the venue can seat around 6,900 people and covers over 58,000 square meters.
