Dreifachturnhalle Davos Platz
The new sport complex is articulated in three elements with a strong architectural and urban significance: a base, which encloses all the required functions; a lantern, which crowns the indoor sport pitches and acts as a signal of the campus; a terrace, which connects the fluxes of the school community and operates as an outdoor playground.
The gymnasium building, located in the center of the plot, creates a sequence of masses and voids which doesn’t impede direct sunlighting and the view of the mountains from the surrounding buildings.
