Mülimatt Sports Education and Training Center
Architects: Studio Vacchini Architetti
Site: Brugg, Switzerland
Studio Vacchini Architects presented a different approach to sports centers. Sports centers are structures that need to span long distances and are often solved with metal frames. Here, however, they have used concrete shells in order to support the roof loads, which also compose the facade.
The folded-plate elements are made of precast concrete which allowed the structure to span 80 meters in length and 55m in width.
