CONCEPT PROPOSAL
The area is part of a wooded hillside, previously excavated for half of its height to accommodate the sports fields. The project is a landmark leaned on the slope, closing the existing planimetric organization and creating an artificial field to contain the outdoor sports facilities. The volume is based on the reshaping of the soil, obtained with inclined planes or ridge that allow the reconnection of existing levels. Below them, large rooms are derived to house the majority of public functions. The intervantion is boundered by the slope, to preserve the rich vegetation of the area and the permeability of soils. The buildings have an orientation east-west, with the head on the western boundary of the intervention, to allow a correct daylight of pool and outdoor areas for summer recreation. The organization of functions is divided enhancing the visual connections between different levels, to give back to visitors an image of Hygiene and brightness, essential to the quality of sports facilities.
