From the architect. Designing an athletic track could get you as bored as when you are running on it: curve, straight, curve, straight, again and again…

Perfectly standardized, sport architecture has become more universal than international style. Track length of 400 m, 36.5 m radius. 1.22 m each lane….just data, without any fissure to let your imagination soar.

We have added to the conventional track an alternative one, amateur and funny, raised and tree-dimensional. It goes off on a tangent, covers the changing rooms and returns to the conventional track.

As new ways are available for athletes, spectators get involved in the sport activity, seated in-between this two tracks.

This is our tribute to all the sport pioneers that created new ways of performing that later others followed. Tom Burke, Dick Fosbury, Graeme Obree….

You would think someone with a user ID 'Bolt' would be more aware of how runners train. The hill is a great feature, you could combine hill training and speedwork.

Im an architect and sprinter.

Its very useful - hill straining on one side - overspeed training downhill. A bit of indoor season training with the camber... a nice place to warm up during races when the track is being used. it's perfect - maybe in my climate i'd like some red track in underneath too for warming up when it rains.

Now, where is the loop!?

This is one of those ideas that is so good and so obvious that you wonder why it hasn't been done before.

It is most certainly not useless! I guarantee that runners will enjoy the hill breaking the monotony of their jog round the oval, and it could prove to be useful for marathon conditioning and the like.

My dad is a keen runner, and he would enjoy it as a user apart from any architectural examination.

Josh Mings · April 13, 2011

It is like the porches at the Kimbell, useless but they definitely help make the project. Kahn himself said the porches were useless, but that is what was so perfect about them.

Bolt · April 13, 2011

as nice as useless

DrHFloyd · April 14, 2011 08:49 PM

It is not useless, you are just clueless.

OfLightning · April 13, 2011 05:57 AM

but PERFECTLY useless. I love it.
