Structure layout

The Beijing Olympic Park is divided into three parts: the Olympic Forest Park of 6.8 square kilometers in the north, the central area of 3.15 square kilometers in the middle, and the built and reserved area of 1.64 square kilometers in the south (the Olympic Sports Center).

The completed and reserved area was originally the National Olympic Sports Center. It is located in the area south of the North Fourth Ring Road and east of Beichen Road. All the venues are the venues for the 1990 Asian Games – including the Olympic Sports Center Stadium and Olympic Sports Center. Stadium and Yingdong Swimming Pool. The southern reserve will be developed as a cultural business district. The central area is located in the middle of the Olympic Park, south of Kehui Road and north of North Fourth Ring Road. There is an Olympic Village in the northwest corner, and various main venues in the south, including the National Stadium “Bird’s Nest”, the National Aquatics Center “Water Cube”, the National Stadium, the National Convention Center (the fencing hall, the International Broadcasting Center). In addition, the Olympic Multi-purpose Broadcasting Tower (Linglong Tower), the Digital Beijing Building, and the Main Press Center are also in this area . The Forest Park is located north of Kehui Road. It uses the ancient Chinese garden technology of the lake to build the “Olympic Sea” and “Yangshan” as the end point of the Beijing central axis extending northward. The park is divided into the North District and the Southern District by the Fifth Ring Road. The Southern District is dominated by artificial landscapes, and the location of the North District is closer to the natural wilderness. In the middle of the two districts, an “ecological corridor” spanning the Fifth Ring Road is set up. On the west side are the Olympic Park Hockey Stadium, the Olympic Park Archery Range and the Olympic Park Tennis Court (now known as the “National Tennis Center”). In another division, all areas except the Olympic Village are combined according to planning functions, and five areas are divided:

South of the National Stadium North Road is the “sports function area”, the National Stadium “Bird’s Nest”, the National Aquatics Center “Water Water Cube”, the National Stadium, the Olympic Sports Center Stadium, the Olympic Sports Center Stadium, the Yingdong Swimming Pool and other major sports facilities are located. Within this area. Between the National Stadium North Road and the Kehui Road, the east side of the Dragon-shaped water system is the “Cultural Science and Education District”. The new Science and Technology Museum opened after the game, the planned new museum of the National Art Museum of China, and the China National Studies Center are located in the cultural and educational facilities. This area. Between the National Stadium North Road and Kehui Road, the west side of the Dragon-shaped Water System is a “characteristic business district”. The National Convention Center, the Beichen Intercontinental Hotel, the Sunken Plaza Commercial District, and the Watchtower under construction are located in this area. The “forest recreation area” between Kehui Road and the Fifth Ring Road corresponds to the Southern District of the Forest Park. North of the Fifth Ring Road is the “Eco-Sports Area”, corresponding to the North District of the Forest Park.

The Olympic Park has designed different landscapes around the central axis of the park, and has designed three axes – the central axis, the tree array on the west side and the dragon-shaped water system on the east side. Three different spaces (Celebration Square, Sinking Garden, Leisure Square) are set up between the dragon-shaped water system and the central axis. The waterfront is also equipped with landscape design. In the park, an iconic landscape tower, the Linglong Tower, was set up to provide studios and TV broadcasts for the media. In addition, the historical relics in the park, including the historical sites such as the Beiding Niangniang Temple, are also considered within the scope of landscape design.

The central axis itself is designed as a landscape avenue with a total area of 400,000 square meters. There is no building in the middle (called the “virtual axis”, as opposed to the “real axis” of the building in the inner city). From the south of the boulevard to the island of Panda, north to the South Gate Square of the Forest Park, the total length is 3.7 kilometers. In the range of 21 to 60 meters in width, gray granite is used to imitate the royal roads in Chinese ancient buildings, even if The location of the intersection of municipal roads remains unchanged to maintain the integrity of the avenue.

The tree-line landscape on the west side has a bandwidth of 100 meters and a length of 2.4 kilometers. It runs from the north side of the Fourth Ring Road in the south to Kehui Road in the north, and is disconnected in the middle of the National Swimming Center and the National Stadium to form a square. The trees in the tree array are separated by 6 meters, and the matrix is arranged. The tree species are mainly local species in Beijing. Considering the cost, not all of the ginkgo is used, but the species of Pinus tabulaeformis, Populus tomentosa, Chinese carp, and eucalyptus are the main body of the square. The side is run through the ginkgo array. Under the tree, from the hard permeable bricks in the south to the regular hedges in the middle, it eventually became the free greening of the north and gradually integrated into the forest.

The east-facing dragon-shaped water system has a total length of about 2.7 kilometers, a width of 20 to 125 meters, and a total area of 16.5 hectares. It starts from the south side of the bird’s nest in the south and reaches the forest park Olympia in the north. Although it is an artificial water system, the water source is also the middle water produced in the sewage treatment plant, but the ecological balance is artificially constructed during construction to achieve the effect of natural purification. The West Bank of the West Bank is a non-motorized road, with a hydrophilic platform next to the sinking garden, supplemented by steps, platforms, seats and other facilities. On the east bank, a strip of green space is set up. The vegetation on the west side is relatively short and sparse, and the east side is called high and dense. This is beneficial for viewing the central area from the east bank to the west, and also makes the central area look eastward. Layering.

In the three-segment space, the southern section of the celebration plaza is connected to the central axis plaza, providing space for the surrounding national stadiums, swimming centers, and gymnasiums for large-scale event gathering and outdoor activities after the game, and fountains on both sides of the north and south. The mid-sinking garden is designed in conjunction with the surrounding subway station and more than 200,000 square meters of underground commercial facilities. Seven courtyards are set up under the theme of “Open Forbidden City”, which are arranged from south to north, with different designs ( 4, No. 5 courtyard is separated by roads, using the same design), reflecting different elements of traditional Chinese culture. In the northern part of the leisure garden, vegetation is naturally planted, as the central area gradually transitions to the buffer zone of the forest, and there is an open space in the middle of the vegetation for activities; the watchtower under construction is located in the leisure garden.

The underground circular traffic corridor in the central area of ​​Beijing Olympic Park is 9.9 kilometers long, of which the main road is 4.5 kilometers long and is the longest urban tunnel in Asia. The direction of the circular passage is roughly equivalent to Nanyi Road, Hubian East Road, Beiyi Road and Jingxi West Road in the central area of ​​the Olympic Park. The east and west sections are 13 meters above the ground, and the north and south sections are 7.8 meters above the ground. The main body of the channel is 4,498.92 meters long, with a total length of 1713.8 meters. The outlet connected to the ground is 3,719.06 meters long, and the entire underground engineering length is 9,931.78 meters. The channel is 12.25 meters wide and has 3 lanes. The special feature of the channel is that it only allows one-way driving in a counterclockwise direction with a speed limit of 30 km per hour. 25 entrances and exits connect the surrounding road network. There is an entrance and exit every two or three hundred meters in the underground passage, a total of 25. The dense entrances and exits are connected to nearly 10 municipal roads such as the North Fourth Ring Road, Chengfu Road, Datun Road, Kehui Road and Beichen Road around the central area of ​​the Olympic Park. Among them, there are 6 entrances and 7 exits connected to the ground road, and 6 entrances and 6 exits connected to the Datun Road Tunnel and the Chengfu Road Tunnel. The underground passageway also communicates with the underground garage in the surrounding buildings, and interfaces are reserved for those buildings that are still on the drawings and have not been started. There are 34 such interfaces. In addition, the underground passage is not a simple passage, and there are complete auxiliary facilities, including 5 independent personnel escape exits, 1 fire pump station, 1 monitoring center, exhaust fan room and blower room.

Development and construction

Site selection process

After the end of the 1990 Asian Games, Beijing soon began to bid for the 2000 Olympic Games. In the bid report submitted in 1992, it was proposed to expand the existing Olympic Sports Center as the main sports center, construct a new 100,000 stadium in the south of the Olympic Sports Center, and expand the Olympic Village to the north; Construction of the “21st Century Sports Center”, including swimming pools, gymnasiums and tennis courts. At that time, various international individual sports organizations had lower requirements for venues, and Beijing only needed to build seven new venues to meet the requirements.

However, Beijing lost to Sydney by one vote and failed to bid for the 2000 Olympic Games. After a lapse of five years, in November 1998, the CPC Central Committee and the State Council approved Beijing’s bid to host the 2008 Olympic Games. On March 31 of the following year, the Beijing Municipal Government and the State Sports General Administration established the “Beijing Bid for the 2008 Olympic Games Planning Coordination Group”. Research on the layout of the Olympic venues and the Olympic center. The site selection of the central area has gone through four stages of site selection. There are 15 plans in the first phase, and four directions are proposed in the third phase: the Olympic Sports Center, Dingfuzhuang, Shantou and Yizhuang. The Olympic Sports Center and the Southeastern Yizhuang are both oriented and refined into five options. In the end, in order to give the judges the best impression in the bidding process, the municipal government decided to abandon the southeast direction that is compatible with the direction of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei integration, and chose to build the Olympic Center in the northern part of the city that was built more mature by the Asian Games. The center of the body expands to the north, and the original administrative center reserved for the central axis is changed to the Olympic Park.

The reserve of this piece was originally the scope of Datun Township and Yuli Township. In the middle of the country, the name of the land was low, and the name of the song was named after the Song and Liao ancient battlefields. This place was originally farmland. It was planned as a science city in the 1960s, and the 917 building was built. Several research institutes under the Chinese Academy of Sciences are here. Due to the reserved land reserved for planning, Beijing did not carry out any construction here, and thus became a region where the floating population lived, and even once was the market for waste paper trading.

Bid plan

After the site selection work, the municipal government immediately launched the collection of the Olympic Central District planning plan. At the beginning of March 2000, the Beijing Municipal Planning Commission held an international competition for the planning plan for the Olympic Central District. In July, it was judged by experts and selected 12 finalists. Subsequently, after the integration of the various programs, a bidding plan was formed.

The scope of the bidding plan includes the original Olympic Sports Center, the Chinese National Park, the Central District, the National Avenue, and the Yuli Forest Park, covering an area of ​​1,215 hectares. In the central area, a new stadium, swimming center, gymnasium, tennis center, hockey field, archery field will be built, and the exhibition hall of the new exhibition center will be used as the competition venue and main news center and international broadcasting center. Including 14 venues including existing venues, 15 events can be held. The stadium, gymnasium and swimming center are located on the east side of the central axis, connected by a podium; the exhibition center is located on the west side of the axis, symmetrically arranged with the east side sports building, and a square with a length of 800 meters and a width of 400 meters is arranged on the middle central axis. At the northern end, there is a twin tower with a tower height of 500 meters and a building area of ​​600,000 square meters. It functions as an office building and a hotel. It mimics the shape of the monument in front of the St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican and is intended to introduce Western architectural style, but it has been criticized. It is considered to ignore the characteristics of traditional culture. The Olympic Village is set up in the northwest corner, with a total construction area of ​​470,000 square meters. There are 3 restaurants, including 360,000 square meters of athlete apartments. Set up a forest park in the north.

Program formation

After the successful bid, the 500-meter twin tower project was abandoned due to factors such as safety, capital and feasibility. Subsequently, under the authorization of the Beijing Olympic Organizing Committee, the Beijing Municipal Planning Commission again conducted the collection of the Olympic Park planning plan in March 2002, and held a planning and design plan at the Beijing International Convention Center from July 16th to 29th. Exhibition. The first prize was awarded by the United States Sasaki Architects and China Tianjin Huahui Engineering Design Co., Ltd., which became the blueprint for the final design of the Olympic Park. In this program, the designer put forward the concept of “The Five Thousand Years of Chinese Civilization Memorial Avenue”. This avenue extends northward along the central axis, and the People’s Republic of China, Song Dynasty, Han Dynasty, and Zhou Dynasty are arranged from south to north. The five memorial plazas of Xia Dynasty and the Three Emperors and Five Emperors, the last two of which are located in the Olympic Forest Park, the axis finally disappeared into the forest park, meaning that ancient Chinese civilization originated in nature; the forest park is located in the north part of the Fifth Ring Road. It means the Kunlun Mountains; the south part is dominated by water, meaning the East China Sea, and an island is set up in the center, meaning Penglai Xiandao. The lakes of the Forest Park act as “faucets”, causing the dragon-shaped water system throughout the Olympic Park to bring nature into the city.

In November 2003, the Olympic Park Central District and Forest Park landscape design plan was collected. Sasaki Architects and Beijing Tsinghua Urban Planning and Design Institute won the joint program. For the first time, the central axis was named “the axis to nature.” On the basis of these several schemes, the designers have deepened, and after many discussions, the concept of “Five Millennium Memorial Avenue” has been cancelled, and the main mountain of the Forest Park has been moved to the south of the Fifth Ring, while reducing the water surface area to compress investment.

Construction process

The first project of the Olympic Park, Xindian Road, started on June 7, 2003. On December 24 of the same year, the Bird’s Nest and the Water Cube started construction. The subway Olympic branch started in May 2005; the forest park was June 30 of the same year. start. In 2008, these projects were completed.

The first way is the second-generation ID card scanning; the second way is the mobile phone QR code scanning: the third way is to manually register the admission information. After the implementation of the real-name system, the Olympic Park will provide personalized, integrated services to enhance the experience of visitors to the park. At the same time, the real-name system can strengthen the supervision of the park by the regulatory authorities and ensure the safe and stable operation of the Olympic Park.
