The Century Lotus Stadium, which is established in Foshan in China’s Guangdong territory, opened in 2006 and was created by German architects Gerkan, Marg & Partners (GMP). The stadium is used as a track and field stadium and for football games.
Placed on a green slope, with its spherical shape and its great white layer roof, the stadium showed up as an open lotus bloom and became a symbol for the games of 2006. The spherical building, built at a value of around 850 million yuan, features an inventive spoke-wheel development, mostly secured by a folded white layer roof, which measures in at 1,148 feet in the distance across. Against the green background of the sports park in which it is found, the stadium takes after a lotus blossom, helping it to settle naturally in its environment. The 36,686 - capacity stadium is used basically for soccer matches and facilitated the first-round game between Myanmar and China during a qualifying event for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
