Sports equipment that is decided semi-buried due to the reduced dimensions of the site, the large volume of the program and the high density area where it is located.
This project decision, on the one hand, releases the visual impact on the city and provides public space; fear another Part, It improves the energy efficiency of the building from the volumetry itself.
The review of local construction techniques (ceramics) provides both the Criteria of austerity of resources and mitjans as well as those of Formal Expression. As a result, exposed brick facades are projected (material with good aging and long duration) that alternate voids and canvases; opaque, translucent and transparent areas; and ceramic pieces of different formats and colors.
Decisions such as the volume of the building, the use of solar protection with lattices or the existence of cross ventilation, have minimized the energy requirements of the building that has achieved the Leed Gold certificate. First prize in the preliminary draft competition organized by BIMSA
