Article source: Daniel Valle Architects

Suncheon Bay is famous for its natural sceneries. The privileged location in the junction of the Dong and Isa streams is house of the widest reed bed in South Korea. Among the world’s wetlands, Suncheon Bay is widely known for attracting the largest number of rare birds. Suncheon Bay represents the best of the region and has been always the epicenter of tourism.

We would like to propose for the Suncheon Art Platform competition an urban reinterpretation of the natural sceneries of Suncheon Bay.  We wish to connect the collective memory of the bay with a new cultural and urban life in the city center of Suncheon where Culture and Nature become the raw materials to fabricate a new creative platform for citizens to enjoy and express themselves.

Gymnase Jean Gachet in Saint-Étienne, France by LiNk Architectes

Thursday, March 2nd, 2017

Article source: LiNk Architectes

Between city center and boulevard, the gymnasium is part of a global project of urban requalification.

The program imposes the creation of a void where sports activities (sports field and climbing wall) will take place. This vacuum imposed by the sporting uses draws from the outset the volumetric draft of the project which is summed up with a regular parallelepiped implanted along the boulevard. From this constraint, the project seeks to radiate beyond its own physical limits. The urban scale then becomes the means of punctuating the main volume and anchoring it in the site and in the city. It is through urban windows that the building directs, locates, and articulates this new urban project in the city. These windows are voluntarily out of scale, and are expressed by point stretches of the main volume. Focusing on existing urban and landscape events (garden, large Sequoia, crassier), they become a pretext for opening views and favoring natural light. The use of extruded aluminum on the façade contributes to the moderation of the building’s mass by means of changes in color, light, and volume perception.

Oslo Skatehall in Norway by DARK Arkitekter AS

Friday, February 17th, 2017

Article source: DARK Arkitekter AS 

Skateboarding was banned in Norway on 1 September 1978, with the intention of preventing serious accidents. This did not discourage the skateboarders, and the skateboarding scene grew steadily. When the ban was lifted in 1989 the interest exploded. Skateboarders went from being lawbreakers to celebrities and youth idols. In January 2017, 28 years after the ban was lifted, Oslo finally got its own custom-built venue for the today a well-established sport. Oslo Skatehall stands now as the best custom-designed skatepark, and one of the largest of its kind in northern Europe.

Sports Centre Longvic in France by Dietrich | Untertrifaller & Sénéchal-Auclair

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

Article source: Dietrich | Untertrifaller 

Just like the sport itself, structures built for sports are always signifiers of identity. Especially in such provincial communities as Longvic in the south of Dijon, sports clubs play an important role in social life. Here the architecture of sports facilities can contribute to the self-image of the community. Named after the French hand baller Véronique Pecqueux-Rolland, the new sports hall offers ideal training and tournament conditions to the teams of the regional handball and martial arts leagues as well as to popular sports teams and various schools.

The Hurlingham Racquet Centre in London, England by Metsä Wood

Wednesday, February 15th, 2017

Article source: Metsä Wood

The Hurlingham project in London involved the construction of a sports complex including four indoor tennis courts and four squash courts. The racquet hall, designed by David Morley Architects, is 35 metres wide and 55 metres long. The main span consists of suspended steel beams. To give the courts space and reduce the costs, the beams are spaced with large gaps of 12.9 metres. To fill these gaps, the architect wanted to see wood.

Article source: MoederscheimMoonen Architects

How can you make a motorway section attractive and functional for the local residents? This is the question MoederscheimMoonen Architects set to work on for the Municipality of Schiedam. They devised a unique solution for a stretch of the A4 motorway between the Dutch cities of Delft and Schiedam. The result is wonderful green park and a new sports location that will definitely appeal to the imagination. Located some six metres above the motorway, the sports fields are enclosed by one of the largest canvases in Europe. Together with Lace Fence, the architects created no less than 8,500 m² of colourful fencing that consists of over 1.6 million life-like ‘pixels’.
