LocationIncheon, Korea

Scale Site Area: 18,600㎡
G.F.A.: 18,312㎡

The Aqua Center, newly planned within the Incheon Literature Sports Complex, is the official competition venue for the 2014 Incheon Asian Games. It is designed with a capacity to accommodate over 3,600 spectators and has a total floor area of 18,000 square meters. The Aqua Center comprises a 50-meter swimming pool zone suitable for official competitions, a 25-meter diving zone, an aqua aerobic zone, recreational sports facilities, and administrative spaces. The architectural concept of the Aqua Center transforms the fluidity of water into a geometric structure, creating a new icon within the Incheon Literature Sports Complex. The roof of the Aqua Center forms a continuous dynamic loop that encompasses the swimming pool, spectator seating, and the exterior spaces of the literature sports complex, providing a new sky landscape and a spectacular venue.
