Jahn Sports Hall

Jahn Sports Hall in Lippstadt

Neuw opportunities

The Jahnplatz in Lippstadt is the sporting center of the city, so the new Jahnsporthalle creates new opportunities here.

The construction of the new three-field sports hall adds another attractive element to the sporting centre of the city.

The new Jahn Sports Hall in Lippstadt, Germany, enhances the sporting centre of the city and harmonises perfectly with its surroundings. The joint project between the Evangelical Church and the city of Lippstadt offers more opportunities for schools and associations.

The Jahnplatz in Lippstadt (North Rhine-Westphalia) is a paradise for sports enthusiasts. It offers not only the opportunity to play football or burn off energy on the running track but also ample scope for individual sports. For example, the dirt park for mountain bikers, the skatepark or the large exercise park.

The construction of the new three-field sports hall adds another attractive element to the sporting centre of the city. Eling architekten of Lippstadt have created a modern 2,450 m² three-field hall on behalf of the city and the Evangelical Church of Westphalia, which harmonises perfectly with the local surroundings.

The existing retaining wall bordering on Jahnplatz was skilfully integrated into the design, offering visitors as a place to sit and watch the world go by.

Located in the immediate vicinity of the secondary school and the Jahnplatz, the light-flooded white hall rests on a brick base.

The existing retaining wall bordering on Jahnplatz was skilfully integrated into the design, offering visitors as a place to sit and watch the world go by.

Here visitors will also find the entrance, with long concrete stairs leading into the foyer, which is flooded with light thanks to the large windows. There is also a ramp leading into the new building.

Acoustic ceiling panels enhance the wood-and-concrete aesthetic.

Inside Jahn Sports Hall, a large grandstand offers space for about 600 people, and there are several multi-purpose rooms, which can be used for the theory lessons taught alongside the sports classes, as well as changing rooms.
Light concrete elements are combined with light wood elements, making the entire hall, which also includes a climbing wall, bright and inviting. In keeping with this design, acoustic panels in a natural wood tone were installed on the ceiling.
Since its inauguration in October 2021, the Jahn Sports Hall has enjoyed great popularity not only among students but also among clubs.

Casa Futebol: Living in a World Cup stadium

Stayin’ alive

Appartment instead of upper tier: How about using our unused big stadiums as residential space?

Casa Futebol is a response to the large-scale structures known as “white elephants”.

The project “Casa Futebol” proposes a mixed and sustainable use of the stadiums renovated or built for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil by inserting 105m² housing modules.

Casa Futebol is an architectural response to the white elephants resulting from major sports events like the Fifa World Cup 2014 in Brazil.

The project was designed by Axel de Stampa et Sylvain Macaux as a part of their Think Tank “1week1project”. Casa Futebol takes into account the housing deficit in Brazil (5.2 million homes) and covers all 12 Brazilian World Cup stadiums.

The central part of the stadiums (pitch and lower tier) is not affected by the conversion work, neither are match day activities.

Axel de Stampa et Sylvain Macaux insert living space into these stadiums, replacing the upper stands by prefabricated housing. Six stadiums are capable to integrate apartments in their facade: Brazilia, Mineirao, Arena Fonte Nova, Maracana, Arena Castelao and Arena Das Duna.

Five of these six stadiums have been built with concrete or metal columns patterns with a 7 or 8 metres span.

The prefabricated housing units can easily be inserted between the spans. The central part of the stadiums (pitch and lower stands) is not affected.

About 1,500 to 2,000 people could live in each stadium.

There are approximately 315 residential units covering the exterior facade and 315 indoor units for the Brasilia National Stadium.

About 1,500 to 2,000 people could live in each stadium, in total about 20,000.

The architects are concerned about the socials context accompanying such big events. The stadiums are absurdly big, the housing issue in Brazil is so real.
Cape Town Stadium, venue of the 2010 World Cup Final in South Africa, only hosted only seven matches in four years.

Common Monnem

Common Monnem

Mannheim together

Florian Budke combines architecture, graphic design and typography in his work. He also invents so-called supergraphics.  

Mannheim is not only known for its square city layout and Baroque palace, but also for its diverse citizenry.

Mannheim, a medium-sized city in southwestern Germany, is known for its grid-plan city layout, its baroque palace and its brutalist buildings – but also, and above all, for its ethnically and culturally diverse population. This diverse and colourful mix of people can be experienced, among other places, in Neckarstadt East and Neckarstadt West, two districts northwest of the city centre.

The cultural link between the two neighbourhoods is ALTER, a public space situated next to the Alter Messplatz, which, with its free sports and cultural activities, is a place to meet, pass time and get together.

A graphic has been installed on a sports pitch at ALTER that tries to express all the positive qualities of this community-creating space: a ‘supergraphic’ that seeks to visually represent and strengthen the existing cohesion of the people and its atmosphere.

The project also aims to set a marker for the preservation of public cultural spaces, both within the city and beyond.

The aspect of active togetherness already came into play during the realisation, because several interested people spontaneously followed the public call for help every day.

“Common Monnem – together Mannheim”: The title of the project is composed of the words “Common” and “Monnem”.

The 38-metre-long and 16-metre-wide supergraphic with a total area of over 560 square metres follows a typographic approach. This draws reference from the basic geometric motifs in the poster for 1975 State Garden Show in Mannheim. The iconic skyscrapers overlooking ALTER were also constructed around this time. The oversized lettering “Common” forms the focal point of the graphic. The letters are oriented towards the centre of the pitch – analogous to players who gather together in a circle before a game begins: they hook into each other in a circle and thus form a unit.

The graphic’s connection to its location is also reinforced by the choice of colours. The pink, for example, picks up on the colour of ALTER’s facade, while the green establishes a relationship with the adjacent green space on the banks of the Neckar river. The red, blue and yellow are taken from Mannheim’s city coat of arms.

The intended theme of active togetherness was already present during the realization of this project. Numerous interested people spontaneously responded to the public call for help on a daily basis. Thus, while the super graphic was being created, the declared goal of the project was already being realized: “Common Monnem – Together Mannheim”.

L’Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped

L’Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped

Le grand art

Six million visitors in 16 days: Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s “L’Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped” has also been a commercial success.

No tickets or reservations were required to admire and touch the artwork.

An estimated 6 million people viewed Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s L’Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped, Paris, 1961 – 2021 during its 16 days from September 18 through October 3, 2021. The project, realized in partnership with the Centre des monuments nationaux (CMN), in coordination with the City of Paris and with the support of Centre Pompidou, wrapped the Arc de Triomphe monument in 25,000 square meters of recyclable silvery blue fabric and 3,000 meters of recyclable red rope.

The artwork was free and accessible to the public, no tickets or reservations were required to view and touch the temporary work of art. The artwork of Christo and Jeanne-Claude created an exceptional enthusiasm: six million visitors came to admire L’Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped”.

Like all of Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s past projects, L’Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped received no public funds or sponsorships, and was entirely funded through the sale of original works of art by Christo, including preparatory studies and collages, models, artworks from the 1950s and 1960s and lithographs. The cost of the project was approximately 14,000,000 Euros (16 million USD). The cost includes planning, engineering, building, staffing, maintenance, and removal of the work of art.

Of the 6 million visitors, an estimated 3.2 million were tourists. This means an approximate 235 million euros in tourism revenue during the 16 days.

More than 1,200 workers contributed to the project, including manufacturers, engineers, building contractors, onsite monitors, and security personnel. The construction team was made up of 140 individuals with 95 climbers, who unfolded the fabric panels on each of the four facades of the Arc de Triomphe from its rooftop terrace.

Over 350 welcome monitors greeted visitors to the artwork and handed out free fabric samples throughout its 16 days. The majority of monitors were from France, however, they represented approximately 20 different nationalities, and languages spoken including French, English, Italian, Spanish, German, Bulgarian, Chinese, and Japanese.

According to the Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau, an estimated 6 million Parisians and visitors from around the world experienced L’Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped, Paris, 1961-2021 in person and explored the area outside of its perimeter, including shops and restaurants. Of these 6 million, it is estimated that 3.2 million were visitors (tourists staying in the area or day-trippers who spent several hours near to the monument) and 1.1 million were primarily motivated to see the artwork, generating an estimated 235 million euros in tourism revenue during their stays.

The Place de l’Etoile was closed to car traffic for the three weekends of the exhibition and was reserved entirely for pedestrians.

To enable visitors to enjoy L’Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped, Paris, 1961-2021 safely and close up, the Place de l’Etoile was closed to vehicular traffic and pedestrianized for the three weekends of the display. This exceptional closure to traffic was organized with the support of the City of Paris and the Préfecture de Police, and enabled over 1.4 million Parisians and visitors to enjoy the artwork car free thanks to the pedestrian perimeter during the weekends.

Deinstallation of L’Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped, Paris, 1961-2021, began on October 4 and ended by November 10, 2021. During this time, the interiors and the panoramic terrace of the monument, managed by the CMN, remained open to the public.

As done in all past projects by Christo and Jeanne-Claude, the materials used to create L’Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped will be reused, upcycled, and recycled.

Christo died on 31 May 2020 at his home in New York City. He worked on L’Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped until the end. The project was realised under the direction of his nephew.

Fish Trap House IV

Fish Trap House IV

Beautiful trap

Fish Trap House IV was not only a contribution to the Taiwan Lantern Festival 2020, it also aims to preserve valuable handmade culture.

Fish Trap House IV is a contribution to the annual Taiwan Lantern Festival, which is very spectacular in Taiwan.

Artist Cheng Tsung FENG applies Taiwanese traditional fish traps as the theme of artwork. Invited hundreds of local in Taichung to workshops to learn weaving the art craft of the fish trap. With them hundreds of fish trap was made and hang bamboo sign with their wishes on it. People surround hand by hand unite together. Rewrite the precious art craft which is going to vanish into our memory and body.

Recently, Cheng Tsung FENG was invited to create a lantern in the most fabulous event – Taiwan Lantern Festival. He began a huge collective work plan for this two-week celebration.

During the processing, FENG and his partners drove a truck and went to four farmers’ associations in the festival’s location, Taichung. He found out hundreds of inhabitants who didn’t have any experience for basket weaving. FENG taught them how to weave basket with bamboo and shared the story behind the traditional fish traps.

Feng taught the farmers how to weave baskets and told them the history of traditional fish traps. This is how Fish Trap House IV was born.

They finished over two-hundred basket units and bring these units together in the location. Finally, it became a grand installation art in public.

After the end of the festival, this grand installation art work carefully unpicked and took back to their maker by truck. Each basket unit has their own tag which is written down the wish of maker.

These basket weaving item and invisible craft skills will keep Integrate into their lives. This exposure sparks new ideas and possibilities.

Fish Trap House IV has not only been a contribution to the Lantern Festival 2020, it also aims to preserve this valuable culture.

Those traditional craft lesson became into their own personal experience. It inspired those inhabitants in farmers’ associations to make something new. A number of people said they would make a lampshade, others would make duck cages, and the others would pile up like a Christmas tree with this bamboo basket units.
Cheng Tsung FENG led and taught people making fish trap hand by hand. People reunite together as each unit gathering in site. Expect body experience, there’s no text record to preserve those precious handmade culture.

By this collective work plan, FENG write down these craft originate from Taiwan into our memory. Keep those ancient treasure live in our body for eternity.

Therme Lindau

Therme Lindau

All in

Minimalist charm and unique design, promising extensive bathing fun and maximum relaxation.

Therme Lindau offers a unique wellness and bathing landscape spread over 13,000 m² and including a spacious outdoor area with a spectacular view of both water and mountains.

Designed by 4a Architekten GmbH from Stuttgart (Germany) and nestled in the beautiful landscape between Eichwald and Lake Constance, the spa in Lindau is located on the shore of Lake Constance.

The elongated new building features expansive windows and a wood/concrete facade, inviting you to linger in its unique wellness and bathing landscape spread over 13,000 square metres and including a spacious outdoor area with a spectacular view of both water and mountains.

The elongated building was aligned with the edge of the shore. The ground floor features the various areas of experience. Above this, gently embedded in the landscape between Eichwald and Lake Constance, lies the second level.

The water attractions in a total of six different pools include a lazy river, a wild stream complete with tube water slide, a water cave for children and a giant whirlpool for up to 30 people.

The spa features a family and sport pool, including a 25-metre Olympic swimming pool and an expansive area boasting thermal baths, a wellness centre and saunas.

An elegant and inviting dining area with a pool bar overlooking the lake, a fitness area as well as a spa area that can be booked for private use complete the premium wellness offer.

The water attractions in a total of six different pools include massage loungers, bubble seats, neck jets, a lazy river, a 40-degree spring pool, a wild stream complete with tube water slide, a water playground, a water cave for children and a giant whirlpool for up to 30 people. There are also diving towers, an intensive salt water floating pool with underwater lighting as well as an underwater concert hall.

The Troldtekt acoustic panels absorb sound and go well with the overall design.

The minimalist exposed concrete design combined with wood and stone elements is elegant and expressive. Large, partially sloping concrete structures subdivide the areas on the ground floor, creating striking spatial scenarios.

The building’s open ceiling design allows even more light to enter in addition to the large windows.

The Troldtekt acoustic panels absorb sound and go well with the overall design, thus fulfilling a key role. Adding colourful highlights in green, red and black, they contrast beautifully with the light walls and floor.

Troldtekt Accoustic Ceiling

Acoustic ceilings in swimming pools

Shhh.

To be successful in offering relaxation, the quality of the building materials used along with attractive facilities is crucial.

Ceiling and walls clad with Troldtekt acoustic panels effectively absorb the sounds of splashing, shouting and playing, thus contributing to pleasant acoustics in swimming centres.

Escape from everyday life and experience relaxing moments. This is what today’s guests expect from an indoor swimming pool. To offer this, not only attractive features are required – the quality of the building materials used also determines the well-being of the guests and thus the success of the pool.

Ceiling and walls clad with Troldtekt acoustic panels effectively absorb the sounds of splashing, shouting and playing, thus contributing to pleasant acoustics in swimming centres.

Cement-bonded wood wool panels are also durable, with a natural resistance to moisture. The flexible design options also offer considerable architectural freedom.

Choosing materials is a particularly challenging process for architects designing swimming centres. Of course, the materials have to aesthetically match the architectural idiom. But a number of functional requirements also need addressing.

Swimming centres are usually large spaces, high-ceilinged and with many glass or concrete surfaces. In combination with the excited shrieks of children having fun in the water, this calls for acoustically exacting solutions. It is therefore important that the large ceiling and wall surfaces are clad with materials that have a high absorption coefficient – so they effectively soak up the sounds.

Environments with constant high humidity also place additional demands on the strength and moisture tolerance of the materials. Finally, the expansive walls often need a very carefully conceived visual design.

Troldtekt panels are chosen for many swimming centres – and outdoor baths – because the natural advantages of the cement-bonded wood wool panels perfectly match the requirements. You can read about five reasons why Troldtekt is an ideal choice below.

Cement-bonded wood wool retains the essential qualities of the components used to produce it – the strength of cement and the natural breathability of wood.

Superior acoustics

The open structure of Troldtekt acoustic panels absorbs sound effectively. The result is shorter reverberation times, minimising unpleasant noise – in the swimming pool areas and in the associated facilities (changing rooms, café etc.).

>> Read more about good acoustics

Natural strength

Cement-bonded wood wool retains the essential qualities of the components used to produce it – the strength of cement and the natural breathability of wood. Troldtekt acoustic panels are moisture-tolerant and therefore extremely suitable as acoustic ceilings in wet rooms. The panels cannot rot and do not attract fungal growth or other microorganisms.

The Danish Technological Institute has documented that Troldtekt acoustic panels are suitable for installing in rooms with:

  • moisture levels of up to 98 per cent (+/- 2 per cent)
  • high temperatures of up to at least 40 degrees.

Troldtekt has thus achieved the highest CE marking level (D) for water resistance.

The documentation shows that Troldtekt is a robust choice for even the most humid and warm rooms such as swimming pools, shower rooms and wellness departments.

>> Read more about natural strength

Effective fireproofing

Wood alone is an organic and flammable material, but every single wood fibre in a Troldtekt panel is encapsulated and protected by cement. Troldtekt panels are therefore fireproof without the use of any fire retardant or dangerous chemicals.

Troldtekt acoustic panels are fire classified under European standard EN 13501. Troldtekt acoustic panels are classified as B-s1,d0, which denotes the material’s reaction to fire. In practice, this means that Troldtekt panels are only weakly combustible and weakly heat and smoke-emitting.

>> Read more about effective fire protection

Troldtekt panels can be used to create a unique look on large ceiling and wall surfaces, adding to the whole as sound-absorbing design elements.

Flexible design

Troldtekt panels offer a number of different design options. Through special installation, colours or CNC machining, the panels can be used to create a unique look on large ceiling and wall surfaces, adding to the whole as sound-absorbing design elements.

Troldtekt design solutions come with the same great technical properties as the classic Troldtekt acoustic panels.

>> See the design options

Documented sustainability

Troldtekt is certified in the silver category under the internationally recognised Cradle to Cradle scheme.

The certification was attained in part because the panels contain no substances that are harmful to humans or the environment. They can therefore return to the biological cycle as nutrients, or to a technical cycle as a raw material in cement production.

 

Ramboll has also outlined how Troldtekt specifically contributes points to areas such as total cost of ownership, indoor climate and materials in the leading sustainability certifications – DGNB, LEED and BREEAM.

>> Read more about documented sustainability

Simple installation

Troldtekt panels are installed directly on battens on ceilings and walls or using profile systems such as suspended ceilings – with concealed or visible profiles. When installing the panels, only a few screws are needed per panel. There is no need to use filler or paint after installation.

The Troldtekt series includes specially designed screws that match the panels’ standard colours and structure. If you choose Troldtekt panels in custom colours, we can supply extra paint so you can dab the screws in the same colour.

Modřice Sports Hall

Modřice Sports Hall

All in one

Modřice Sports Hall has the ambition and the potential to become a local community centre.

The site is located betweeen a primary school and the railway line. So Modřice Sports Hall serves as a noise barrier for the school and does not take any daylight from the classrooms.

The sports hall is located in Modřice – the surrounding part of Brno which is the second biggest city in the Czech republic. The urban structure in Modřice has the scale of a small town.

The site is located betweeen a primary school and the railway line. Modřice Sports Hall itself is situated on the boarder of the railway line so it serves as a noise barrier for the school and does not take any daylight from the classrooms at the same time.

We see the former building as a historical layer which gives the site a high value. The memory of the place itself is important for our proposal and therefore we restore the old building and put there the restaurant- an important place for the community life.

The lower service part of Modřice Sports Hall is on the side to the school so it doesn´t shadow the school building.

The floor level of the hall is 3 m lower than the floor of the entrance foyer. That enables to keep the height of the buildng low.

Modřice Sports Hall has the ambition and the potential to become a local community centre. The architecture of the buillding should therefore express the solidity, the importance of the place.

The spatial concept fits perfectly in its surroundings. The great sports hall is separated to three equal volumes which corespond with its function. The biggest hall can be divided into three volleyball/ netball courts.

The volume of the former restaurant becamed a volume pattern, by repeating the same volume is emhasized its existence.  

The floor level of the hall is 3 m lower than the floor of the entrance foyer. That enables to keep the height of the buildng low, to have the same height of the cornice with the old building and it also improves the heat balance of the building.

The entrance foyer is the core of the building, the meeting point, where the sports people meet the spectators.

The entrance foyer is the core of the building, the meeting point, where the sports people meet the spectators. Right after entering the foyer you can take a look unto the sports hall trough a big window. The gallery of the big hall can directly be accessed from the foyer, as well as the main stand, the changing rooms, the gym and the outside courts.

The other side of the foyer leads downstairs to the service part of the building. Here, the swimming pool and some belonging changing rooms are located.
The lower level is directly connected to the primary school via an underground corridor, because the swimming pool mainly serves for the school children.

The upper story of the building is dedicated to the mirror hall with the natural rooflight.

The entrance foyer is also connected to the old building with the restaurant on ground level and the sportss club accomodation on the upper levels.

Important elements for the interior are the rooftop skylights.

The baring concrete structure of Modřice Sports Hall is visible in the interiors and give it a strong character. The structure itself creates many interesting views through the building which simplify orientation.

Important elements for the interior are the rooftop skylights providing perfect inderect light for the big sports hall, the mirror hall, the gallery of the sport hall and the corridor leading up to the mirror hall.

The outer space in front of Modřice Sports Hall is paved and became a proper town public space. The street between the hall and the primary school is a side street with trees and parking area.

Two new multifunctional outdoor sports grounds next to the existing sport courts were bulit as well. Next to the restaurant, old trees were preserved. A playground for children and an outdoor dancing parquet are about to come.

We did this.

The Arch

The Arc at Green School

Unique

The geometry of this arch not only saves a lot of building material, it also results in a beautiful sports hall.

The Arc aims to set new standards for sustainable building and education.

The Arc is the newest building on campus at the world-renowned Green School in Bali, Indonesia. The school has a 12 year history of breaking boundaries and expanding horizons.

The Arc is the newest benchmark in that history, raising the bar for sustainable education around the world. The first building of its kind ever made.

Along the way, The Arc is a fantastic and distinctly multifunctional sports hall.

The Arc at Green School is built from a series of intersecting 14 meter tall bamboo arches spanning 19 meters, interconnected by anticlastic gridshells which derive their strength from curving in two opposite directions.

The design model was a mammal’s chest.

The Arc is a feat of engineering; it required months of research and development and fine tuning of tailor-made details. The result is a refined design with unparalleled beauty.

The Arc employs one of nature’s greatest strategies for creating large spaces with minimal structure. Within a human ribcage, a series of ribs working in compression are held in place by a tensioned flexible layer of muscle and skin.

This creates a thin but strong encasement for the lungs. In the case of The Arc, arches working in compression are held in place by tensioned anticlastic gridshells.

The Arc’s counterintuitive orchestration of geometry brings the structure into a state of equilibrium.

These fields of gridshells appear to drape across the spaces between impossibly thin arches soaring overhead, giving a whimsy, intimacy and beauty to the space. Although, the gridshells appear to hang from the arches, they actually hold them up.

“The gridshells use shape stiffness to form the roof enclosure and provide buckling resistance to the parabolic arches. The two systems together create an unique and highly efficient structure, able to flex under load allowing the structure to redistribute weight, easing localised forces on the arches.” says Neil Thomas from Atelier One.

The Arc’s counterintuitive orchestration of geometry brings the structure into a state of equilibrium, which means a dramatically decreased necessity for structural material. This also means an unprecedented inner volume with an impossibly thin structure and without any distracting trusses.

We did this.

aquanale & FSB 2021

aquanale and FSB

Re-Start

Spanning in total around 65,000 m² of exhibition space, FSB and aquanale, turn the fair grounds in Cologne into the “place to be”.

FSB will take place from 26 to 29 October 2021 in co-location with aquanale.

FSB, the International Trade Fair for Public Space, Sports and Leisure Facilities, which kicks off in Cologne in less than eight weeks, is all set to go. The leading international trade fair for the industry will play a key role in successfully relaunching the market and is a must for anyone wanting to achieve success in the play, sports, public space and leisure sectors.

Only here do all industry players get a comprehensive overview of what’s new: the latest technologies, product innovations, process optimisations and visionary planning. The #B-Safe4Business hygiene concept and the new 3-G concept, CH3CK, which requires all attendees to be fully vaccinated, or have recovered from an infection within the last six months (but at least 28 days ago), or test negative for Covid, will ensure that all participants are completely safe.

Around 270 companies from 35 countries will be exhibiting at FSB, which this year will cover approximately 37,000 sqm in Halls 9 and 10.1 of the Cologne trade fair grounds. More than 70 per cent of the exhibitors are from abroad. The strongest international presences come from France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Poland, Italy, Spain, the USA, Turkey and the Scandinavian countries. The exhibiting companies cover everything relating to public spaces, playground equipment, outdoor fitness, ice sports, sports equipment, sports flooring and stadium infrastructure.      

Around 180 companies from 25 countries will be exhibiting at aquanale.

Around 180 companies from 25 countries will be exhibiting at aquanale, which this year will cover approximately 24,000 sqm. 58 per cent of the exhibitors are from abroad.

This is where German and international trade fair visitors from specialised pool construction companies, local authorities, water parks, architect’s and planning offices, hotels, day spas, gyms, sanitary, heating and air-conditioning companies as well as premium private visitors can inform themselves. 

Spanning in total around 65,000 m² of exhibition space, FSB and aquanale, turn the fair grounds in Cologne into the “place to be”.

Spanning in total around 65,000 square metres of exhibition space, both events, FSB and aquanale, turn the fair grounds in Cologne into the most important location for amenity area planning and design, the architecture and management of sports facilities, playgrounds, sports equipment, exercise areas, recreational facilities, as well as the public and private pool sectors.

With IAKS, the International Association for Sports and Leisure Facilities, as its conceptual partner, and with FIFA, the Synthetic Turf Council (STC) and its EMEA branch (ESTC), the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB), the Federal Association of Playground Equipment and Leisure Facilities Manufacturers (BSFH), STADTundRAUM and the Sportnetzwerk @FSB network also on board, FSB enjoys the backing of many associations and cooperation partners, all of whom have plenty to offer both in terms of sports and additional content matter over numerous dedicated exhibition areas. The world-renowned IAKS Congress, along with further congresses and specialised events underline the significance of FSB as the leading international trade fair for the industry. 

FSB

The main programme theme for the IAKS Congress 2021 is “Developing healthy and sustainable communities”.

The IAKS Congress will be taking place as part of FSB for the 27th time this year. The main programme theme for the IAKS Congress 2021 is “Developing healthy and sustainable communities”, providing an opportunity to explore how local authorities can create the right conditions for healthy and sustainable lifestyles for citizens. Congress sessions will focus on issues like “Climate change and environmental sustainability”, operational solutions (“Digitalisation and future trends”), and the social sustainability of sports and leisure facilities.

In addition, IOC, IPC and IAKS will once again confer the coveted international architecture prizes in 2021. The awards draw the public’s attention to exemplary buildings and facilities that succeed in bringing the factors sustainability and legacy, clear functionality and exceptional architecture into harmony with each other. 86 teams of operators and architects from 25 countries are vying for the awards this year. Furthermore, the IOC IPC IAKS Architecture and Design Award for Students and Young Professionals invites young architects, landscape architects and designers to conceive inventive spaces and surfaces for an active lifestyle. 44 students and career entrants from 12 countries have submitted their design concepts here.

We did this.

Kaufland sports roof

Kaufland sports roof

The active roof

The activation of roof surfaces in times of declining resources is one of the great challenges of our time.

The often neglected “fifth façade” offers huge potential for accommodating sports facilities, playgrounds or day care centres.

The Kaufland sports roof is a wonderful example of the sustainable activation of roof space in urban areas. The often neglected “fifth façade” offers huge potential for accommodating sports facilities, playgrounds or day care centres in an urban environment and in a manner that saves both space and resources.

Sportbetrieb Erfurt, the Kaufland supermarket and REGUPOL are among the pioneers of the movement.

Our cities are becoming increasingly crowded. More and more people are moving closer together in increasingly limited spaces. Even providing locations for such essentials such as food, retailing and sports is becoming difficult.

Rooftops offer a vast, and to-date, rarely explored potential for a wide range of uses. They are frequently seen as no more than places for installing air conditioners or antennas – things that nobody really wants to see or attract attention to.

This is a lost opportunity because these roofs can have many highly attractive uses.

The Kaufland sports roof is a fully equipped type C athletics facility – and one of the best-visited sports facilities in the entire city due to its spectacular location and views.

The city of Erfurt took a new approach as early as 1994. The steadily expanding residential real estate “Kleiner Herrenberg” in the south-east of the Thuringian state capital suffered from an urgent lack of both shopping and sports facilities.

During the initial planning phase for the new food retail store, the idea of putting sports on the roof and shopping underneath began to take shape.

And this is how the Kaufland sports roof came into being.

The Kaufland sports roof has a large artificial turf playing field (73 x 110 metres), a four-lane, 400-metre running track with six straight sprint lanes, long jump, high jump and triple jump facilities, as well as two volleyball courts.

It also includes a spectator stand with sweeping views over the whole city and a building to house changing rooms for athletes, judges, teachers and coaches as well as equipment rooms.

The Kaufland sports roof is thus a fully equipped type C athletics facility – and its spectacular location and view makes it one of the most frequented sports facilities in the entire city.

The renovation of the athletics surfaces was carried out in a sustainable and resource-saving manner – without removing and disposing of the old surface.

The artificial turf pitch was renovated from the ground up in 2012, with the running track and other athletics facilities following suit in 2020. REGUPOL, a long-standing sponsor and promoter of sport in Erfurt, was responsible for this second stage.

For renovating the athletics surfaces, a sustainable and resource-saving approach was taken: after cleaning each synthetic surface thoroughly, a new wear layer was applied on top without having to remove and dispose of the old surface beneath. This process is called re-topping and is one of REGUPOL’s many strengths.

REGUPOL had previously equipped Erfurt’s two largest sports facilities, the Steigerwald Stadium and the Hartwig-Gauder Hall and is also a sponsor of “Top Team Thüringen”, a local sports team.

All of Thuringia’s top athletes should be able to train and compete under one roof.

Just as important is the promotion of young talent: young athletes should stay in Thuringia and not change. The top sprinter Julian Wagner and his coach Tobias Schneider are ambassadors of this alliance.

Cooperation between Erfurt sports clubs, Kaufland and REGUPOL has ensured a lasting and sustainable supply of sports activities for the Kaufland sports roof.

The newly renovated Kaufland sports roof is a prime example of the symbiotic use of densified spaces in urban capitals. While Kaufland provides the local area with basic needs in food supplies, the sports ground covers the need for sporting activities – close to home, sustainable and extremely space-saving.

Cooperation between Erfurt sports clubs, Kaufland and REGUPOL has ensured a lasting and sustainable supply of sports activities for the Kaufland sports roof.

Activating roof space in times of increasingly scarce resources is one of the great challenges of our time. However, it is not only about designing roof areas appropriately, but also about ensuring conflict-free use of a building’s various levels. Here, sound insulation in particular plays a major role, which is also one of REGUPOL’s core competences.

Our awareness of social issues, the enormous experience gained from installing sports surfaces in well over 100 countries and our vast expertise with a wide variety of acoustic challenges are what motivate us to take on more projects of this kind. Both on the roof and below it.

We did this.

Nou Camp Nou

Nou Camp Nou

Green Day(s)

Nou Camp Nou connects neighbourhoods and districts, produces 15,000 kg of oxygen and absorbs 25,000 kg of CO2. And all that every day.

The city of Barcelona offers its residents just 6 m² of green space per capita. That is not enough.

Barcelona currently has just more than 6m² of green areas per inhabitant. According to the WHO (World Health Organization), cities should have a minimum of 9m².

The ON-A proposal for the Nou Camp Nou (Nou Parc), a forest that would cover the Camp Nou in Barcelona, ​​aims to turn the area into a great green lung using bioarchitecture as a strategy for renaturation.

According to the ON-A philosophy, the renaturation of cities and the creation of quality spaces for its citizens is not just an interesting idea, but a need.

Nou Camp Nou aims to show how nature can return to cities without absorbing additional space.

Currently, the area around the Estadio Camp Nou is largely sealed. It only has 8% of green areas.

The Nou Camp Nou project shows how nature would come back to cities without losing buildable space, raising the topography and creating a blanket of green forest above the stadium and its facilities, which would remain below the surface of the new park.

Currently this area is a closed concrete space and only 8% of green areas. Consequently, an “island” effect is generated, separating the neighborhoods of Les Corts and Zona Universitaria.

The space is huge and is in disuse most of the time, except during sport events or private visits to its facilities. Neighbors often experience collapse when the space comes into operation during major events.

Nou Camp Nou turns the journey to FC Barcelona matches into a spectacular experience. On all other days, this project is just a great park.

The conversion of this area would provide a great opportunity for the city of Barcelona, ​​which would gain a new green space capable of connecting neighborhoods while producing 15,000kg oxygen/day and absorb 25,000kg of C02/day.

Inside Nou Parc Nou you could walk or run along a 2.4km route, stretch in green areas and picnic in reserved areas, in addition to enjoy a 360º panoramic view at the highest point of the park, which culminates around the stadium.

The two lakes would help to cool the temperature and help the development and maintenance of the area, as well as being natural collectors of rainwater, which could be reused for the irrigation and maintenance of the park.

This project helps to create a new permeability that would allow the connection between the two neighborhoods of Les Corts and the University Area, apart from giving more value to their neighbors and to the city of Barcelona itself without affect mobility and current logistics.
