Stadium RCD Español Competition, Barcelona
In association with Ateliers Jean Nouvel
In the municipalities of Prat de Llobregat and Cornella de Llobregat, the construction of a sports, leisure, entertainment and shopping complex, integrated within a large urban park for public use it is proposed.
This sports complex is the new stadium of R.C.D. Español. Around this building was born a shopping, leisure and entertainment center that was functional, structural and formally linked to it. This center complements the sport activities and makes possible the feasibility of the stadium and its surroundings not only every fifteen days (days of football match), but daily.
Restaurants, museum, bowling, cinema and other activities provide an attractive offer to give the area its own and independent character. A large park that acts as a filter between the adjacent urban plot and the sports complex, acts as a lung in a not particularly dense area, but with constant activity. Two hotels, one public and one private, complement the building offer in the area.
The architectural concept is based on the heart of the project (midfield football) as a hub that justifies the development of this large complex, that is developed concentrically the rest of the program whose final is a big green square filtered by gardens parallel to the stadium that make the public space a sum of different landscape sequences.
