It will become the only double Olympic Stadium in the world that has held both the opening and closing ceremonies of the summer Olympic Games and the Winter Olympic Games.
The "Water Cube" of the National Swimming Center has been transformed into an "ice cube" through a creative "water ice conversion" scheme, and has become a venue for curling events in the Winter Olympics. After a year's renovation of the venue structure, temperature, humidity, lighting and acoustics, the National Swimming Center has built a conversion foundation, ice making system, dehumidification system, air conditioning system, sports lighting system and control system in accordance with the Winter Olympic curling competition standards. In December 2019, the National Swimming Center completed the ice making work of "Olympic standard" ice surface for the first time, and successfully held the first high-level curling event of "ice cube", becoming the first Olympic stadium to realize "water ice conversion" in the world. In May this year, the "ice cube" was changed back to the "Water Cube", and the National Swimming Center completed the full cycle conversion of the double Olympics mode for the first time. The "water ice conversion" scheme takes the Winter Olympics transformation as an opportunity, takes scientific research innovation and new technology application as means to form a new and all-round solution integrating the transformation of venue function, venue operation mode and even the thinking transformation of sustainable operation and development of Olympic venues.

The steel consumption of the roof system is only about one fourth of that of the traditional roof. As the first in the history of Olympic Games, the ice making system of transcritical direct evaporation of carbon dioxide has become the world's first speed skating stadium using natural working medium carbon dioxide as refrigerant. "Ice ribbon" smart venue construction will integrate the most advanced information technology, the best quality audience experience, the most refined management in one of the construction and operation solutions of sports venues. In the first half of 2020, under the guidance of Beijing state owned assets Corporation, the construction of the national speed skating hall project was orderly arranged, and the cross construction of roof, mechanical and electrical equipment installation, decoration, ice making engineering and other work processes was steadily promoted.
