Period2017 - 2018
The project involves the construction of a sports building on the perimeter of the European research centre (JRC) located in the municipality of Ispra. The goal of the project is to replace, by dismantling and demolition, one of the current marquees with a permanent multi-purpose gymnasium, with characteristics that allows it to be also used for collective events such as ceremonies, school parties, etc. This large number of sports disciplines required a dimensioning of the minimum sports area size of 38 by 22m. To meet these requirements, the new building has a larger surface area than the current one, as the project provides for the expansion of the floor area in the direction of the hill on the southern slope towards the Club House in order to make several playgrounds available at the same time. The resulting building has a size of about 41m by 30m and a maximum height of 11m.
