Sports Facility

Free Running
While all buildings have some functional requirements, there are few which are quite as uncompromising as those for sport. The uniformity of sports pitches is a strength in allowing fair, safe play, but for designers it greatly reduces the options.
A large-sized stadium needs to represent a certain group or lends itself to iconic architecture. However, this section looks at four projects which were built on a local level, have a significant social function as well as the architecture of sports facilities and stadia. Therefore, exterior design that reflects local characteristics,
programs and routes have been exploited in various ways through the architect's ability, and the sports ground takes a stronger symbolic function through additional functions achieved in cooperation with the local community.
Let's take a look at examples where a building effectively becomes a symbol in the town with a unique idea that incorporates stringent design requirements. Alison Killing
On Being on the Top

On Being on the Top; Standing on the giant’s shoulder
The contemporary world is facing a crowded environment, in which a growth of density becomes often an obligation in moving upward. Climbing on pre-existence, therefore, frequently becomes a way to build a new architecture.
Climbing is a planning act that, from the Chinese paintings by Shen Zhou, to the works of Adalberto Libera, Carlo Mollino and Rachel Whiteread, reverberates itself in the words of Bernard of Chartres: Standing on the shoulders of giants. It is an attempt to rise, to reach altitudes always higher, but finding a new integration with the landscape, highlighting the difference between old and new, digging and standing firmly on the pre-existence.
And then, perhaps, taking flight. Diego Terna
