The design for a new stadium for Ruch Chorzów, one of Poland‘s largest clubs, has been unveiled. The winning proposal, designed by GMT Mysłowice, will have a capacity for 12,000 seats and, although described as not being “the most impressive [design] overall,” has been selected for its simple, clean form and “value for money.” With ruch meaning ‘movement’ or ‘motion’ in Polish, the concept for the design has hinged around “giving passers-by a different perspective from every possible angle as they move along the stadium.”

‘BS25′ Silos – Diving and Indoor Skydiving Center Proposal / Moko Architects

Courtesy of Moko Architects

The proposal by Moko Architects for the Diving and Indoor Skydiving Center restores a part of a house factory in Żerań which operated in the past,. They turn a building in a non-developed area with abandoned halls and warehouses into a recreation center open all year round in the old silos where bulk cement used to be stored in the past. The existing facility is a perfect base for this investment and will be the only place in where people wishing to learn the skills of diving will have the opportunity to safely train at the depth of 25m under control.

Custore, an experimental project, is a pavilion that explores the areas of parametric architecture used for the commercial market. Designed by Anna Dobek + Mateusz Wojcicki, they had to deal not only with the aesthetic issues of computer-generated sculptural forms, but also with practical problems associated with the execution of the project inside a commercial building, and – most importantly – with the real clash of artistic forms and commercial market guidelines. More images and architects’ description after the break.
