Stadium court is so ugly !

Absolutely terrible, very cold. Chinese architects don't seem to know what a proper tennis stadium should look like. God, this bizarre concrete roof with big holes in it looks like a jail. What can you do , this is Communist China...

I don't like it. Cold is a good description.

I think it looks really cool, especially from the outside.

Yeah, right, Communist China explains it all.

Incidentally, the new Bejing Tennis Center was designed by Bligh Voller Nield, one of Australia’s largest architectural practices.

I don't like it, looks very bland. Also, it might be due to the recent rain or pollution, but there never seems to be a sunny day- the sky is always grey/white.

Whoever did it, it was done according Chinese guidelines. And let me say from the outside it looks like a cake or some mignature modern piece of art. Ugly.
