What better way to embody sports and recreation within a stadium than by putting actual representations around it? Head Architecture has done this with the East Asian Games Venue, surrounding it with what looks like five giant basketball nets (which were actually inspired by the five Olympic rings).
Not only will the rings act as artistic sculptures, they will also provide outdoor public seating. Check out the gallery, courtesy of DesignBoom.com, to see the East Asian Games Venue. Also visit their site for more info and images.
