The project seeks, with its functional clarity, to organise the different types of pedestrian circulations and, with its clean geometrical lines, to underline the urban identity of the sports complex, always on an unpretentious scale in comparison with the other buildings.
In a total surface area of 2,774 m2 there is a public passageway 5 m wide, which brings the sports complex closer to the city.
Crossing the assembly from one point to the other, it forms the vertebral column of the concept.

The two stands built at the north and south goal ends are expressed as two floating geometrical volumes.
The cladding of the stand façades enables the volume to be illuminated at night as a great urban lantern.
The idea was for architecture free of superfluous ornament, with a timeless image and technologically impeccable.
