Hockey Stadium in Zurich
Sitting on a robust plinth, anchored between the railway tracks, the motorway and family orchards, the building signals the entrance to the city of Zurich.
Designing the Bowl
Once the bounds of the project were altered in 3D, the script automatically outputted a grandstand volumetric representation according to the sight line requirements.
The main elements of the brief, a volley ball arena, ice hockey arena, and training hall are combined within the overall shape of the building.
A veil of perforated and folded chrome steel is laid like a tablecloth over the building, unifying the different functions, while at the same time hinting the large spaces behind it.
