The National Stadium , formerly known as the World Games Stadium, is a multi-purpose stadium in Zuoying District, Kaohsiung, Taiwan. It is currently the largest stadium in Taiwan in terms of capacity.Completed in 2009, it is used mostly for football matches and it hosted the main events for the 2009 World Games. The stadium has a capacity of 55,000 people. Since the conclusion of the games, the stadium has been used for some Taiwanese football team matches.The stadium, designed by Japanese architect Toyo Ito, makes use of solar energy to provide its power needs. The stadium's semi spiral-shaped, like a dragon, is the first stadium in the world to provide power using solar power technology. The solar panels covering the vast external face of the stadium are able to generate most of the power required for its own operation, as well as additional power that can be saved.TransportationThe stadium is accessible within walking distance West from World Games Station of the Kaohsiung MRT.

  • 設計理念: 1.2009世運會主場館三個重要的設計概念-都市公園、開放式運動場、螺旋連續結構體。建築設計團隊不用過去傳統的體育館設計手法,在封閉的空間中舉行各項賽事,而是採用世界體育場少見的開放穿透式空間規劃,將南向的量體打開,呈現出迎接民眾進入主場館的親切意象,由於建築的開放,讓體育場空間友善的與外部環境相互交流融合。 2.為了避免太陽的直射造成選手直視太陽的情況而影響比賽,故本田徑場中心軸採用由「西北-東南」傾斜15度的方位角去進行配置。 3.本場館將一樓迴廊及上層看台最上端後方,設計成可通風之高開口率建築量體,如此可藉由外部氣流自然導入觀眾席區,降低看台觀眾席的悶熱並充分改善高溫環境。
