Seattle Center HUB (Hybrid Urban Bioscape) by Aetrangere

Friday, October 5th, 2012

Article source: Aetrangere


While society is becoming more complex, two social dynamics could have an enormous incidence in the way that public space will perform in the future. People have a growing concern about environmental matters while an increasing access to information in real time ( and to the mobile media technologies that make it possible) are defying the classical conception of public space, redefining our expectations and confronting it to evolving demands for a wide range of new social experiences.

University of Houston Stadium Parking Garage in Houston, Texas by WHR Architects

Saturday, September 29th, 2012

Article source: WHR Architects

Designed by WHR Architects, University of Houston Stadium Parking Garage parking provides far more that parking. The 2,300 car facility contains a Barnes & Nobel Fan Shop, Cougar Express Mini Market, Taco Cabana restaurant, offices for UH Parking and Transportation and UH Parking Customer Services. With 85% of the university’s nearly 40,000 students commuting from around the sprawling City of Houston and its suburbs, reimagining the garage as an amenity project made sense for several reasons.

When David Kosdruy and Eike Schling conceptualized their final architectural project to complete a graduate thesis at the Institute for Design and Construction Technology, Technical University of Munich, they settled on the structural behavior behind the design of a 45,000–seat stadium in Krakow, Poland. The project is one of the proposed venues for the 2012 European Football Championship, which Poland and the Ukraine will cohost.

Al Ain Stadium in United Arab Emirates by MZ Architects

Friday, September 28th, 2012

Article source: MZ Architects

Set into the desert landscape, the Al Ain football stadium celebrates the game it hosts as much as it celebrates the site in which it lays. Recognising the powerful language of its surroundings and intelligently approaching the issue of scale and the intermittent use of the stadium architecture, the project sinks its 200,000sqm structure into the ground and turns the rocky mountain into one of its main features. It creatively works with the topography and relies on a series of emerging planes to mould the space and help cater for the 40,000 seats it provides. The stadium maximizes the use of on-site material and its visionary design merges landscape and architecture, thus blurring the boundaries between the built and the natural and creating a space that allows the visitor to interact with the stadium activities, much as with the desert landscape itself.

A four-year improvement program at Wimbledon’s All-England Club was staged around the annual tennis tournament, with London-based Capita Symonds as the main structural consultant and Edge Structures, a structural engineering design practice based in London and Leeds, coordinating design among multiple contractors. Edge Structures used Bentley’s building information modeling (BIM) software to design the facility improvements for a new retractable roof.

Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Ireland by Populous

Article source: Bentley Systems, Incorporated

When sports architecture firm Populous was selected to design Aviva Stadium, a more than $575 million soccer and rugby stadium in Dublin, Ireland, it had to ensure that the unified form of the building’s concept was maintained from design development through to construction. With such emphasis placed on maintaining the purity of the original concept, functional considerations were made to serve the building’s form.

Cycling Center in Gothenburg, Sweden by Weareyou

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

Article source: Weareyou

“Here’s our vision of what a cycling center in the city of Gothenburg could be.

The group called cyclists is a scattered bunch of people ranging from commuters to exercisers and committed athletes. They are also divided by the choice of bike. Commuters rarely hang out with the people getting dirty in the woods and BMX riders have probably never had the chance to ask why roadies shave their legs. This calls for a change and that’s where this proposal took its starting point. Cyclists need an arena just like any other sport: soccer, ice hockey etc. where the stadium acts as the natural meeting point, ambassador of the sport and its practitioners. We also believe that sports are closely connected to everyday behavior and life style.

Valiant Forces : Seoul’s Urban Stadium as a Poly-Valiant Structure and Explosive Tectonic Form in Korea by Michael Arellanes II

Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

Article source:  Michael Arellanes II

The design proposal is for an urban stadium that will serve the local colleges, high schools, and surrounding communities within Seoul to enclose sports venues and entertainment. The site is located in the Nan-Ji camping area near No-Eul Park, Sang -Am-Dong. This is an ideal site for its view of the city skyline and its proximity to nature. With such an explosive tectonic form placed in such a site, the project performs as a catalyst for varied activities over long durations. Scale and material elements activate the urban condition by the stadiums placement along the coast. With a radiant force of curvature and triangulated panelization through the path of the structures body, it adds a dynamic flux form with structural capabilities. The valiancy is applied to the outer and inner structural shell by its configuration, composite-performance, aesthetic, and operational functions. The dynamic curving exterior body is intended to have poly-operational purposes, not only a visual stimulus but as a layered structure with curving pockets of space that transition the occupant from floor to floor. Entrance into the structure begins at the center of the exploding tectonics; this brings them into a tessellated secondary structure that’s integrated into the stadium seating. The form of the exterior begins with radically fluid bodies and transition into sleek components that shield weather elements and perform with edifice veracity. The component shells distribute tension through the varied curved type and contain a gradient cavity that screens sunlight for the stadium audience. Materials for the project are stainless steel, carbon fiber, and concrete to create a strong monument of urban flux and valiance.

Poly-Valiant structures are tectonics with multi-performance properties that address engineering, aesthetics, technology, surfaces, space, and component based typologies. The urban stadium attempts to contain sleek elements and lines like that of high performance sports cars. This gives the stadium valiancy in aerodynamic formal bodies and operational function. The aesthetic formalizes an exploding force that compounds into a structural shell, and then stretches across in a simple-elegant curve. It expresses the varied stages of force.

Olympic Stadium in Kiev, Ukraine by gmp Architekten

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Article source: gmp Architekten

On the occasion of the UEFA European Football Championships in 2012, which Ukraine is staging jointly with Poland, the rebuilding of the Olympic Stadium for the final game has been realized.

The new design for the reconstruction of the stadium respects the historic fabric with its important filigree prestressed concrete upper tier built in 1968, the frame of the new roof structure being detached and placed clear of the existing bowl. This most distinctive feature is therefore being encased in a new filigree glass façade and will be duly illuminated with appropriate lighting.
