|'Bicycle Club' by NL architects, Hainan, China|
Designed by Amsterdam-based NL architects, 'Bicycle Club' is a super great idea of a cycling arena. Using the form of the traditional and functional pagoda, they designed the rooftop elegantly curved upward.
At the ground level, there is a glass-enclosed cafe that supported the open-air velodrome on the rooftop.

Despite of the loud sound and rain controversy on the article's comments column, I really like the idea of the velodrome on the rooftop because it looks fun! And the shady cafe underneath it would be a great place for the cyclists after a few lap of cycling under the sun.
