We therefore propose a simple building, with an adjusted cost, a strong conceptual clarity and a firm desire for constructive cleanliness. A building capable at the same time of projecting a meaningful civic image and of accommodating itself in the immediate future to the needs of its users; capable of accommodating itself to the daily life of athletes and of becoming a public forum of regional and national scope.
Simplicity, clarity and representation
Now we face the need to build a building that incorporates in its DNA the idea of obsolescence in all its aspects and to think that in another 36 years (or perhaps less) it will be convenient to think about updating its image, adapting its use or, perhaps, dismantling it. completely. We therefore propose a simple building, with an adjusted cost, a strong conceptual clarity and a firm desire for constructive cleanliness. A building capable at the same time of projecting a meaningful civic image and of accommodating itself in the immediate future to the needs of its users; capable of accommodating itself to the daily life of athletes and of becoming a public forum of regional and national scope.
Two new PB2 tracks are projected, arranged longitudinally and superimposed on the width of the current track footprint, occupying the entire length of the plot on the edge of Feria Street. The PB2 courts must be juxtaposed, touching on one of their short sides, so that the services can be arranged in a single spine under the large longitudinal bleachers and offer the greatest versatility of the court surface: two longitudinal (PB2) divisible into six transversal, with the capacity to occasionally become a great track for higher-ranking competitions (up to GP3) or for festive and cultural events. The overlapping of the runway tracks allows the non-operational period to be minimized, as shown in the Phase Diagram presented. The juxtaposition ensures the best operation in the future, offering versatility, circulation control and concentration of activities on the most public façade of the building.
The solution adopted for the position of the tracks, the bleachers and the services ratifies the current preeminence of the façade to Calle Feria as a representative canvas of the building. Through it the main access will be produced, to the south, in a location similar to that of the current building. The façade of the new building is closer to the limit of Feria Street than the existing one, but respecting the valuable alignment of plane trees, to shape a volume of urban character with a wide sidewalk for a walk in the shade between the road and the base. of the new pavilion. The large scale of the facade is nuanced with a light structural texture. Above, on the tops of the plane trees, a viewpoint is projected from the upper area of the stands open towards the Sports City - creating an impossible visual link from the level of the street - and towards the horizon of the Sierra de Guadarrama.
