Beijing Olympic Basketball Gymnasium
Located at Wukesong Culture and Sports Center, the Beijing Olympic Basketball Gymnasium has three floors underground and four floors aboveground, with capacity for 18,000 spectators. Entering Beijing Olympic Basketball Gymnasium, one will first notice the funnel-shaped LED display system. It is the first set of comprehensive displays in China that is able to meet the demands of the National Basketball Association (NBA). The LED system can also be used for theatrical performances, real-time broadcasts and background imagery. Furthermore, all audience seats are upholstered for comfort and convenience. By adopting a rainwater recycling system, easy-to-clean glass and other technologies, the designers fully implemented the idea of "Green Olympics, High-tech Olympics, and People's Olympics" into the construction of Beijing Olympic Basketball Gymnasium.
