Viljandi Festival Arena in Estonia by Kadarik Tüür Arhitektid OÜ

Friday, February 17th, 2017

Article source: Kadarik Tüür Arhitektid OÜ 

Festival arena design is derived from the aspirations of acoustically pure sound. The inner surface of the bandstand is articulated enough to eliminate the need for electronic amplification.  Taking account of the delicate location (site of the former manor park, Viljandi Town Heritage Conservation Area), the outbuilding is designed to fuse with the landscape. The true character of the Festival Grounds is revealed when an event is taking place. The singing people and the facility form a single entity that come together in song.

Umwelt Arena in Spreitenbach, Switzerland by Rene Schmid Architekten

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

Article source: Rene Schmid Architekten

Building 

Aesthetics and ecology converge in the architecture of the Umwelt Arena. A striking architectural feature of the Umwelt Arena is the crystalline roof structure with the photovoltaic system integrated into the building. This is intentional design. The large hall (arena) forms the centrepiece and conveys an open and inviting atmosphere. Solar heat is used to cool the Umwelt Arena in summer and heat it in winter. This is done by means of a distribution network (TABS) in the concrete floors and an earth tube system beneath the base plate of the bottom parking level. Cold water circulates through the network of pipes in summer, hot water in winter.
