With its 10.2 ha total surface, the ’Heerenschürli’ in Schwamendingen is one of the three biggest sports grounds of Zurich. The increasing demand for sports facilities lead to a competition program for the reorganization and extension to twelve soccer fields, the creation of a baseball field, a substantially sized locker room building and a smaller housing for the maintenance facilities.

Article source: Park Architecture
The brief called for a 3.500 sqm combined community center and sports facility with emphasis on sustainability both in construction and use. But rather than applying the traditional repertoire of green technologies to the building, after initial concept design was developed, the client called for an architecture that in itself embodied the idea of the sustainable approach. A precise objective that called for bold strategy.

The site is located in a central area of Madrid, in the district of Chamberí. In this same place, until just a few years ago was located the Vallehermoso Stadium complex. Built in the 50’s, this complex included the locally famous athletics stadium and a number of complementary sports facilities. The installation closed to the public in 2007 and was demolished in 2008. Since then, the Town Hall is planning the construction of a new Sports Center (that is starting to become a reality after the selection of this project as the design winner) and a new athletics stadium that will be developed later on. The construction of the new Vallehermoso Sports Centre will start in 2012. It will be a gentle building in its architectural expression; it will embrace the city and it will interact with it creating a meeting point and an activity focus.

The landsbyhuset in Gyrstinge is an attractor in a small community – a magnet for sports and social activity. Since it is a facility for the whole village, it is intended as a visual symbol that can be a part of a common consciousness. Thus the building should be a kind of magnet – a center that sucks up activity and functions from the surroundings to become a lively hot spot for the village.

The larger challenge of this project is not only to construct a great High Performance Sport Centre and a vibrant Student Commons but also to contribute to the coherent development of the campus as a whole. The new building needs to foster a rich set of relationships within, and between, the different programs it houses and its immediate and larger context, acting as a kind of glue than binds program to site, taking advantage of local opportunity. It needs to support student and campus life while producing unique and memorable new ‘places’ on the U of T campus.
