This assignment for a new multifunctional building with a spectator’s grandstand along the existing track has been approached by us from the sport itself.

The dynamics and perception of athletics is translated into form. This form itself is a logo and could in this way become an icon for the sport.

The building consists of a large grandstand with an accessible roof, which in fact is a continuous three-dimensional course. The different functions have been grouped below this level.
