The winning proposal for the multi-sports complex in the city of Antony, France responds to the strong political will of a new urban ambition for the neighborhood. The context is heterogeneous linear collective housing on one side and unique botanical heritage of the Park on the other. Designed by Archi5 + Tecnova Architecture, this project includes a theme for each function including gathering, meeting, sports activities, and events. This becomes evident in all aspects of the building at all levels. More images and architects’ description after the break.

The Dortoir Familial, designed by NADAAA, focuses on merging with the landscape as the slipped court provides simultaneous interiority and exteriority—protected and private as well as extroverted and engaged. The most significant result of this integration of landscape and house is the production of a monumental vaulted threshold to a central courtyard.
