Abstract
Many innovative technologies have been adopted in the architectural design, structural design and construction of the 16 new stadiums and gymnasiums for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. The state-of-the-art in design and construction techniques for long-span spatial structures in China is fully represented by these structures. This paper describes in detail the innovative technologies utilized for the most representative 13 stadiums and gymnasiums, which provides important references for future design of and research on long-span spatial structures.
