Olympic park design in Rio de Janeiro

We are aiming to reach a continuity and visual connection for the user in between the different programs by joining volumetric tension surfaces that are changing their character within the field in terms of materiality, structure, aperture , to give a diverse spatial experience and that can be set into a semiotic context. In this context there is a minimal surface study with different parameter controls (distance, opening size, direction, angel etc), which is optimized performance to define a spatial condition like indoor/outdoor and to use the negative space as a stadium. We are dealing with two types of shell systems, on one hand tension surfaces (concrete and fabric ) with minimal cuts to define small scale movements and that are creating open and semi – open spaces. With this system we create roof and shading of membrane surface as well. On the other hand our main structure develops into concrete shells to provide seatings or exaggerated connections, joints. Structural joints are developed from minimal surface study, that contains the different types of geometric connection, constraint points and constraint edges. The combination of the two systems provide a „see through“ structure and readability for the elevated olympic park.
