Budget: Alvaro Leon

The particular situation of having to design three arenas and make a renovation for a fourth one in the same area, open to us the possibility to propose a roofing system of parallel strips that will function either for the competition areas and public areas in a simultaneous way, going across each building, growing and stretching as needed. This option was configured as a “build continent” that can be understand like an open scheme that can grow, change its size and be adapted to a changing budget or different unexpected events. Each one of the strips gains altitude over the competition areas reflecting the mountain landscape of the Aburrá valley, proposing tropical sports scenarios, permeable to people passage and view and the typical spring weather of this city.
