Chiangmai Life Architect’s Bamboo Sports Hall for Panyaden International School combines modern organic design, 21st century engineering and a natural material – bamboo.
The design was based on the lotus flower as Panyaden International School is in Thailand and uses Buddhist teachings to infuse values into its academic curriculum and teach the underlying mechanisms of the human mind.

At the time that WilkinsonEyre was invited to design this new factory and headquarters building, Dyson was one of the fastest growing companies in the UK. The new development therefore needed to embrace an extensive range of uses and be built and occupied in a rolling programme. Our original masterplan for the overall site optimised the layout of a range of functions whilst incorporating flexibility for future expansion.
The design created an exciting yet economical space with an undulating wave form roof which ‘floats’ above the trees, disguising the bulk of the factory.

This project was erected in a rugged topography which takes place above the city grounds, the development of the project for the soccer and football stadium for the Tec de Monterrey in Aguascalientes campus.
The project as a paradox seeking for integration and impact of an architectural object on a natural context, but how to develop this natural-artificial symbiosis?

The point of the expansion of the established sports center was the desire to extend the offer to the increasingly popular sport of badminton. The spatial and operational connection to the existing infrastructure with reception, changing rooms and café was at the forefront of the design tasks.

Nicknamed “The Crystal” because of its semi-translucent “skin” made out of polycarbonate that allows for the inner light to escape into the dark Copenhagen night, The Crystal has become somewhat of a local landmark. Flexibility and coherency are other keywords regarding The Crystal. The inner landscape is painted green, which creates a coherency that allows the various areas of the facility to seem visually and spatially connected – even when they are apart or on different levels. The building’s steel and timber structure is covered with opalescent polycarbonate panels with a low U-value. This translucent cover offers excellent daylight conditions.
