TRAINING - Non Architecture Competitions

TRAINING

ALTERNATIVE DESIGNS FOR SPORT FACILITIES

SUMMARY

The aim of the “Training” competition is to develop a design proposal for the sport facility typology, intended as a place where phisical activity and/or sports entartainment can occur. It is asked to the participants to create innovative and unconventional projects on this theme, questioning the very basis of the notion of sport facility. After the recent closure of the European football cup and the Olympic games, you are asked to reinvent the way sports can be practiced, and how they can be used to entertain. Many architecture and design projects have already proposed new ways to empower the social value of sports and innovative solutions to implement them in order to promote a healthy lifestyle. With similar creative attitude the participants are urged to create an artefact, merging considerable programmatic innovation and valuable design tools. The proposal can be a device, a piece of furniture, an interior design project, a pavilion, a building or a urban plan. Scale of intervention, program dimensions and location are not given and they can be arranged by the participants to better suit their project.
