"The Shanghai Oriental Sports Center (SOSC) has become a model project of German architecture and engineering"; this is the verdict of the renowned architectural journalist, Dirk Meyhöfer, in his appraisal of the Shanghai Oriental Sports Center.

The Centre, which was inaugurated in 2011 on the occasion of the FINA World Swimming Championships, combines swimming facilities, a multi-purpose unit and a press center, which together create an ensemble of harmoniously matching forms and materials. The SOSC is located in open public parkland that establishes the urban context.

In this volume, the architects responsible for the design present the SOSC, explaining it with images and drawings. In addition, Dirk Meyhöfer assesses the ensemble in a detailed appraisal.
