Fluid limits

Instead of the image of an hermetic pavilion, here the intention is to give continuity from the inside space to the outside one.

The building is implemented to bury the court and the locker rooms. The schema allows to go through, without visual barriers, from the park to the covered platform, to the stands, and finally descending to the court.

Fluid activity

The main figure is not the own pavilion but the activity flow that is produced: players, public and passers-by.

Fluid light

The kind of light of the pavilion is not of the type of zenith, neither indirect to the north, nor diagonal; all of them corresponding to some kind of locked light. But in here the light is the king of flowing light.

A big translucent roof made of colored polycarbonate levitates over the court allowing the light moving inside and outside freely. The sun protection is guaranteed by the big size overhangs in the South East and in the South West façades.

Fluid air.

The pavilion has got any kind of windows. It is aired through fresh air entrances located in the courtyards and warm air exits (chimneys) located in the roof. The sensation reached is to be in an open space.
