Kayseri Ice Ring is placed 9 km far away from the city center and inside the 10.000 square meters site. With the transportation facilities like car, minibus, bus and railway system; the Ice Ring has the chance to make citizens life more sportive. When designing the form of the building, the relation between the ice and the air comes into the mind. Besides, by the meaning of ice, global warming in our today’s world has the consideration for the citizens. For the changing climates, the less green and our apathetic stands can be more conscious in this way.

Facade & Exterior World:

The platform which was raised by stairs create a coherent spatial with the structure and provides a semi-open area. The roof which extends to the entrance, forms like a fringe and covers the roof patio, while the clear structure reaches to a rectangle shape. This clear prism shaped amorphous structures become noticeable and make a difference with the amorphous gaps. The colored glasses on the amorphous gaps validate that the structure was intended to build for entertainment and sports.
