Kaohsiung National Stadium
National Stadium (Chinese: 國家體育場; also named 龍騰體育場) is a multi-purpose stadium in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. It is currently the largest stadium in Taiwan in terms of capacity.
Completed in 2009, it will be used mostly for athletics and rugby events, including hosting the main events for the 2009 World Games. The stadium will have a capacity of 55,000 people. After the games the stadium will likely be used for some Taiwan football team matches.
The stadium, designed by Japanese architect Toyo Ito, makes use of solar energy to provide its power needs. The World Games Stadium, semi spiral-shaped, like a dragon, will be the first stadium in the world to provide power using solar energy 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.

Famous quotes containing the words stadium and/or national:
“In their eyes I have seen
the pin men of madness in marathon trim
race round the track of the stadium pupil.”
—Patricia K. Page (b. 1916)
“Maybe its understandable what a history of failures Americas foreign policy has been. We are, after all, a country full of people who came to America to get away from foreigners. Any prolonged examination of the U.S. government reveals foreign policy to be Americas miniature schnauzera noisy but small and useless part of the national household.”
—P.J. (Patrick Jake)
