3D ATHLETICS TRACK in Alicante, Spain by Subarquitectura

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

Designing an athletic track could get you as bored as when you are running on it: curve, straight, curve, straight, again and again. Perfectly standardized, sport architecture has become more universal than international style. Track length of 400 m, 36.5 m radious. 1.22 m each lane….just data, without any fissure to let your imagination soar.

London Aquatic Centre in London, UK by Zaha Hadid Architects

More projects by Zaha Hadid

The architectural concept of the London Aquatic Centre is inspired by the fluid geometry of water in motion, creating spaces and a surrounding environment in sympathy with the river landscape of the Olympic Park.  An undulating roof sweeps up from the ground as a wave – enclosing the pools of the Centre with its unifying gesture of fluidity, whilst also describing the volume of the swimming and diving pools.
