Additionally, he was the project lead of the design team for the Beijing Olympic Green northern precinct master plan, which encompassed a 166,000 sq m tennis complex, hockey centre and archery range.

He is keenly aware of the difficult balance between design and brief aspirations, taking into consideration the complex technical and services requirements of large-scale projects, especially that of international stadia and sporting venues of a similar scale.
