What better way to embody sports and recreation within a stadium than by putting actual representations around it?

Not only will the rings act as artistic sculptures, they will also provide outdoor public seating. Check out the gallery, courtesy of, to see the East Asian Games Venue. Also visit their site for more info and images. Stats for Basketball Net Sculptures Trending: Older & Chilly
