Opava sports centre - ideas competition
It is electrifying, captivating to find oneself in the focal point. A man in the middle of nature. Feeling of freedom and thrill at one time. To find oneself on top is liberating. New perspectives, new connections, new image of the landscape (city). New centre of the city, a destination. The centre of gravity, concentration.
The city natural playground. Architectural landscape. Landscape, architecture.
A real centre of sports and leisure for the citizens, functionally completing the historical and business core. Broadening the park areas, making the lungs of the city larger and stronger. Escape from the city, relaxation, free movement.
A protected centre is formed in the middle of the site, a natural square with a water body surrounded by green slopes with white buildings on tops. A place where (and from where) only a few paths lead.
