Valiant Forces : Seoul’s Urban Stadium as a Poly-Valiant Structure and Explosive Tectonic Form in Korea by Michael Arellanes II

The design proposal is for an urban stadium that will serve the local colleges, high schools, and surrounding communities within Seoul to enclose sports venues and entertainment. The site is located in the Nan-Ji camping area near No-Eul Park, Sang -Am-Dong. This is an ideal site for its view of the city skyline and its proximity to nature. With such an explosive tectonic form placed in such a site, the project performs as a catalyst for varied activities over long durations. Scale and material elements activate the urban condition by the stadiums placement along the coast. With a radiant force of curvature and triangulated panelization through the path of the structures body, it adds a dynamic flux form with structural capabilities. The valiancy is applied to the outer and inner structural shell by its configuration, composite-performance, aesthetic, and operational functions. The dynamic curving exterior body is intended to have poly-operational purposes, not only a visual stimulus but as a layered structure with curving pockets of space that transition the occupant from floor to floor. Entrance into the structure begins at the center of the exploding tectonics; this brings them into a tessellated secondary structure that’s integrated into the stadium seating. The form of the exterior begins with radically fluid bodies and transition into sleek components that shield weather elements and perform with edifice veracity. The component shells distribute tension through the varied curved type and contain a gradient cavity that screens sunlight for the stadium audience. Materials for the project are stainless steel, carbon fiber, and concrete to create a strong monument of urban flux and valiance.

Concept:

Poly-Valiant structures are tectonics with multi-performance properties that address engineering, aesthetics, technology, surfaces, space, and component based typologies. The urban stadium attempts to contain sleek elements and lines like that of high performance sports cars. This gives the stadium valiancy in aerodynamic formal bodies and operational function. The aesthetic formalizes an exploding force that compounds into a structural shell, and then stretches across in a simple-elegant curve. It expresses the varied stages of force.
