Estádio Municipal de Paredes in Mouriz, Portugal by Spaceworkers

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

Article source: Spaceworkers

Countering a trend of the current stadium, enclosing its green area inside, was what motivated us in finding this solution. The idea of “giving back” an acre of green space to the town was the main motto for this project. A solid block, which levitates into the landscape. A building which you can see and lets those who pass by see it, too. An open space to the city where football is the main entertaining agent.

SuperStadium in Harbin, China by Alan S Lu

Friday, August 5th, 2011

Article source: Alan S Lu

SuperStadium is a proposal for an Olympic complex for Harbin’s bid for the 2022 Winter Olympics that seeks to integrate the multitude of Olympic arenas and villages into one continuous entity, allowing for a seamless transition between programs and events. With the economic burdens of hosting the Olympic games a key issue in the local and global economy, the proposal attempts to inject the current model of sporting arenas with a social and cultural initiative. Thus, the building itself becomes a series of typological layers, with the ground floor programmed as a cultural landscape with libraries, museums, convention halls, and screening rooms.

Camp Nou Stadium in Barcelona, Spain by Foster + Partners

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

Article source: Foster + Partners

Home to FC Barcelona, Camp Nou Stadium is already the largest in Europe, with over 98,000 seats. The challenge of this project is to reinvent the existing stadium, enlarging it to accommodate 106,000 fans and provide greatly enhanced public areas and increased hospitality facilities. The project goes beyond a simple refurbishment to impact on the spirit of the place. El Barça is ‘more than a club’, and in that sense Camp Nou is ‘more than a stadium’: it is a symbol of the pride the fans feel for their team; a landmark for the city of Barcelona, and beyond that for the Catalan people.

The New Holmenkollen Ski Jump: A Perfomative Project

Project update on November 9, 2011: Holmenkollen Ski Jump Wins The Norwegian Steel Day Prize

Project update on September 22, 2011:

JDS Architects’ Holmenkollen Ski Jump has been announced as the winner of the 2011 ECCS Structural Steel Design Award today at the ECCS Congress in Postdam, Germany. The award recognizes outstanding design in steel construction emphasizing the many advantages of steel in construction, production, economy and architecture.

The European Steel Design Awards are given by the European Convention for Constructional Steelwork (ECCS) every two years to encourage the creative and outstanding use of steel in architecture and construction.

145 years ago the first Norwegian took off from a hill, catapulting himself to the sky, creating a sport that would spread all over the world and captivate millions. Today Oslo remains the undisputed capital of ski jumping, having had annual competitions at Holmenkollen since 1892, served the Olympics in 1952 and hosted several world championships. The Holmenkollen site has been the cradle of evolution in ski jumping and the facility was revisited and improved more than twenty times. Its building history represents a form of record or architectural fossil of the discipline’s progress.
