Tokyo 2020 Olympic Stadium Competition Entry in Japan by Andrea Maffei Architects

Saturday, November 10th, 2012

Article source: Andrea Maffei Architects

The competition for the New Tokyo National Stadium which began in July and ended in September 2012 asked for a proposal for the 2020 Olympic Games. We made a design whose intention was to allow people to feel very close to the activity within, to the athletes and football players, to the exciting atmosphere in which the spectator is involved directly in the games. At the same time we also wanted to design a space which was flexible, that could accommodate the wide range of sports intended for this kind of building, by focusing specifically on circulation that would make movement easy and fluid. In front of the large stadium area there is a main public space that creates a new Festival Sport Plaza, whose roof protects people from rain and provides shadow in the hot summer months. The space was intended to be used for exterior and extraneous events like concerts, oobon parties, political campaigns, small sporting activities, fairs, and many others.

Seattle Center HUB (Hybrid Urban Bioscape) by Aetrangere

Friday, October 5th, 2012

AN URBAN BIOSCAPE

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.

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.
