Urban permeability + built continent
This competition asked participants to design 4 independents sports units, all of them have to be in the same area and very close to each other. Our proposal understood a group of buildings as a single one, like a built continent that could participate in the same technical and spatial strategies, adapting to the timeframe of the construction program. In this way we proposed mixing a semi-covered public space with the sports areas and gardens.
The solar position and the Aburrá valley winds, linked to the existing planning of the site allows, define the buildings localization. The north and south façades are open to the let the major winds pass and the east and west façades have the tribunes and eaves that control the morning and the afternoon sun. In this way we are inside of a single and perpendicular bioclimatic diagram.
These stripes are really a 7 parallel metallic trusses system which geometry changes and relates directly with the city mountainous or topographic context. A metallic columns system, made by three assembled columns, supports the roof system and acts as a rain gutters, conducting water to the city drainage system. With a unique constructive detail, perforated façades, projecting stripes, we are able to solve, in reiterative ways, bioclimatic, spatial and relational aspects.
