Llobregat Sports Centre
Location: Cornella, Barcelona, Catalunya
Design: Alvaro Siza, Architect
The £14m Llobregat Sports Centre contains 40,000 sqm of space. It should be joined soon by a new stadium for Espanyol. It is designed using simple forms in fair-faced concrete, typical for Siza.
The internal pool space is oval-shaped with peripheral curved ramps, like a magnified London Penguin Pool: its roof is dotted with sixty-two circular rooflights. There is also a rectilinear 2,500-seat sports hall.
