Gymnasium = Gymnasion
In ancient Greece, the Gymnasium was used to practice exercise, as a public bath, as a center for studies and as a common place for philosophers. The main idea of this project is to create a meeting place for the citizens. The building is configures into several exterior and interior areas where coexistence happens in a natural way. The project is divided into three parts, the first one, exterior, with a horizontal area ready to hold open air events. The second one defined as daily sports facilities, and the third one understood as the multipurpose gymnasium and spectators area, conceived as an area around the courts and directly linked to the park on the east side of the plot. The last part is the area with the common facilities such as dressing rooms, cafeteria and offices, all of them organized around those three main areas, ensuring the proper functioning of the building.

This design for a sports complex and an indoor swimming pool is the third in a series of sports projects that follow a common thread of operations around an initial concept of ‘constructing the void’, in resonance with the concept of the void in the plastic world constructed at the end of the 20th century.

Atelier PRO designed the new sports complex Bosbadhal in Emmeloord with an outspoken, sporty character, bringing cohesion between the outdated sports centre and swimming pool with several new functions. New additions include a large sports centre and lobby, the latter bringing structure to the various sports facilities. The most important intervention was to provide the old sports centre and new additions with one continuous façade, thereby connecting the mismatching facades and outdated architecture. In this way, the separate buildings become transformed into one sculpture.

Located at the heart of the ‘Butte Rouge’ garden city in the Paris suburb of Châtenay-Malabry, the Léonard de Vinci sports complex houses a multipurpose sports hall, a dojo and annexes.
The project can be divided into two main sections:
- The base of the building which emerges from the park. The low height of the base is in keeping with the existing buildings and forms an extension of the greenery that runs from the garden-city through to the green roof;
- A ‘wooden lantern’, which forms the bulk of the sports hall and sits on top of the large green roof.
