Sports Park | Shenzhen, China


Designed for the 2011 Universaide Games in Shenzhen, China.  The project includes 60,000 sets stadium, Indoor arena and swimming complex.  The project consists of a adaptive skin on a space frame structure that dramatically rises and falls to create structured landscape protection then recombines to form building enclosure for the 3 primary sports buildings.  The master plan and landscape design allow for connectivity to the adjoining residential and elite athletes training facilities to create post Universaide legacy for the cry of Shenzhen.

New York Fashion Week | New York


The Fashion Bible WWD asked Christopher Lee of Populous to design a new home for New York Fashion Week as it moved from Bryant Park to Lincoln Centre.  Imagined as the “knitted” arena to house major shows for Fashion week, where the city is woven into the show and the relationship of inside the “tent” and outside are blurred.  Drawing on Baudelaire’s concept of the  flâneur,  the idea of the walker/watcher is flipped as the watcher and watched become intwined.
