Project for a new community gymnasium. The concept developed from an analysis of the site and program elements.
Support spaces arranged in a block whose placement then defines the sports areas; exercise, games, wellness, etc.
This is wrapped with a unified facade of anodized aluminum expanded metal mesh that provides solar protection and privacy screening for the interior
and creates a strong visual identity to the structure.
This facade concept results in a building that appears solid from a distance, but at close quarters it appears soft and semi-transparent,
lending an ethereal light quality to the gymnasium; creating a building of simplicity and fine-grained clarity.
Competition 2014, South Korea.
Project exhibited at the "2014 Daegu Architecture Culture Biennale".
Honorable Mention: 2018 Urban Design and Architecture Design Awards - Sports and Recreation Category.
