Beyond The Game
MetadataShow full item record
Historically, sports arenas have been used for events of limited duration and frequency. The specialized nature of the venue has led to underutilization. The premise of this thesis is that the social and economic potential of the venue has been limited by the specialized design focus. By programming flexible bordering spaces and designing useful connections to existing infrastructure, this thesis proposes a new type of venue for the city of Calgary. This integrated urban stadium seeks to create a useful object with urban concerns and a destination outside of game days.
