SPORTS PERFORMANCE CENTER IN RADOM / POLAND
The object of the contest was to design a sports and entertainment arena to adjoin an existing stadium. In all cities, constructions of such large scale and relevance are considered to be of vital importance as they contribute to the sustainable development of the whole urban organism and shape the structure of their immediate surroundings. Apart from performing its basic function as a sports and performance facility, the project also has to create a public space that benefits city residents.
The project comprises a multi-purpose sports arena, an existing football stadium, and a building with commercial functions. The sports arena and stadium are fronted by a large public square that follows the course of the main road, thereby defining a prolongation of the city’s public space.
The round shape of the main hall gives the opportunity to form a coherent and significant object which constitutes a landmark for the city. The architectural expression is achieved by the perforated layered aluminum outer shell of the elevation. The hall has a specified capacity of 5,000 and will host performance / artistic happening as well as sports events such as basketball, volleyball, and handball. A crucial aspect of the planning was the analysis of seating schemas in order to ensure full visibility from all angles, solved through the use of a terraced design.
The hall will contain a training hall, changing rooms, executive boxes, restaurants, commercial spaces, and comprehensive technical facilities.
The multifunctional character of the hall was the main objective of the interior arrangement, achieved through the use of several movable walls, special interchangeable flooring and sports’ equipment systems, and especially by dividing the whole complex into functional zones which make it possible for different kinds of events to be hosted in the same space.
