13. Soccer training center

Location Arles. France
Status Academic work
Year 2012

Through this project, we want to focus on questions we have revealed upstream in the urban proposal. The revalorization planned for the riverbanks to reduce existing borders between the "Barriol" district and the old city centre highlight strategic locations. One of them is the soccer field, apparently abandoned. This area gathers a wasterland, the new pedestrian bridge, a tramway and an urban park. First, it’s the horizontality that characterized this space, a nice way to assert itself against the verticality, a main characteristic of the ancient city.

The project seeks to use horizontality through the capacity that offers this kind of program. The stadium is made by a green plan on the ground (grass), the park offers another one plan a few meters above (canopy formed by the pine forest). The work we have done onto the horizontality have starts to become interesting when it is associated with the one we have done onto the transparency, continually sought in the direction of the canal and the city centre. This creates a tension between all of the components of the program.

Finally a particularly thinking is lead on the light, creating a system (horizontality – transparency – light), which make the architecture “alive”. She slides under concrete plans, loses itself in the canopy, is divided on the corners of the sports complex. This one, monolithic, emerges in the suburban housing. His shape, cutting the landscape is reminiscent of the chain "Alpilles" located further north-east. The light is only zenithal when it’s combined with concrete. Otherwise, she arrived in front through large openings, treated as huge windows, which are applied on metal plates deployed filtering the light entering the rooms. The substructure supporting the occultation defines the design of the form that is used for concrete.
