Sky-o-Swale® + Storefront Sports Court in Ontario, Canada by SUSTAINABLE.TO + ERA Architects

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

Article source: SUSTAINABLE.TO + ERA Architects

The Sky-o-swale is a shade-water structure that filters rainwater through a green roof, into an underground cistern. The water is used to irrigate the Community Garden. More than that, the Sky-o-swale is a shaded community gathering space—a stage for performances and seating for the Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment (MLSE) /Jumpstart sports pad. It’s a wondrous structure, with a truly amazing history.

Green Water Sports Station in Upper Silesia, Poland by KUCZIA architect

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

Article source: KUCZIA architect

Like a traditional polish farm, the GREEN WATER SPORTS STATION blends into the rural landscape of the shores of Lake Laka in Upper Silesia (Poland).

Three main buildings of the complex – situated orthogonal to each other – define a public place. This place comes into being on the same way like it occurs in the typical polish manor between the cottage, stable and barn. And analogical to them, every building of the Station has a different function: the boat hangar in the east, the central visitors building on the waterfront and the restrooms with showers westward.

Spordtgebouw in Dordrecht, Netherlands by NL Architects

Saturday, June 7th, 2014

Article source: NL Architects 

Spordtgebouw is a combined sports facility for three separate schools in the so-called ‘Leerpark’. Traditionally, individual schools have their individual gymnasiums. But by combining the sports halls into one compound the quality of sports education can be improved. A higher degree of collectivity of course enhances complexity but sharing also creates added value. It will for instance be possible to differentiate the halls and apply specific functions like a Dojo. During the day the building is dedicated to the schools, but in the evening and weekends it is open to everybody. As such public money will be used publicly.

To provide the small rural sites of the area with sports facilities, the Provincial Government ofLa Coruñalaunched a series of architecture competitions, by which swimming pools and gymnasiums have been built in consecutive phases starting from a series of prototypes that each City Council could choose. Thought out as a generic solution for an area with no distinct features, the prototype selected by the municipalities of Oleiros, Melide, Fene and Pobra do Caramiñal indirectly points at the rain as the common aspect of the Galician landscape. A convex roof shaped as a large gutter is thereby proposed as the identifying feature of the project which, on the other hand, is marked by its compactness and capacity to adjust to different urban characteristics.

ICE RING in Kayseri, Turkey by BKA / Bahadır Kul Architects

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

Article source:  BKA / Bahadır Kul Architects

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.
