Schmidt Hammer Lassen won the design competition to build a cultural hub for the labor union in Ningbo, and the building put in place is architecturally stunning.

The architecture firm went with a stepped terrace layout, which spans over 100,000 square meters. The building will be used for a number of different activities, including but not limited to "spaces for arts, performance, education facilities, offices, sports, and leisure," according to DesignBoom. The site is also located right next to a section of wetland, giving the atmosphere of the place quite a serene feeling out in nature.

It seems like there isn't a sport or activity not offered at this cultural center by Schmidt Hammer Lassen, making it the perfect place to come and relax or get some exercise.
