Along the “respect zone” of Prà, a few years prior to the Rowing Center and facing it, appears the Sports Center designed to host activities with external spaces and connected services all dedicated to the game of soccer.
This was the first occasion for enacting that logic of restoration of the territory according to which it becomes essential to create a settlement to re-establish a changed geographic order.
The whole thing plays out therefore in having the two extended structures face each other: the first one formed by a low building – the locker rooms – preceded by a long ramp and followed by a smaller building – the gym. The second one is made up of a taller building – the fishermen’s warehouse, the common room, the bar and the sports headquarters, equally preceded by a long ramp and followed by a terrace with trellis. Light differences in the levels give contour to the terrain.
