From the architect. Housed in a sports complex in the district of Sant Oleguer, the stadium, with seating for 2,500 spectators, is both a significant element in the complex plan as well as an important landmark for the city.

Located on a narrow piece of land, the design challenge was to create a stadium site specific leaving little to no impact on the existing landscape.

The proposed structure consists of a large deck that seems to unfold following the topographical movement and longitudinal axis of the plot.

One of the most important considerations in the development of the project design was to give some autonomy to the facade so that the shape would not appear identical to the track.
