The objective of the project is to develop an existing site designated within the overall Masterplan, for a Sports Facility to service the students and staff of the University Campus of Education City with the ability to practice sport in a facility which is of the most modern and is tailored to their specific needs. Sustainable Design has been incorporated into the project.

By sinking down the Athletics Arena and Swim Centre buildings, and covering them with a large, ondulating landscaped roof, the project creates a number of shaded plaza areas which will have micro-climates, allowing people to circulate around the facilities in comfort, whilst discretely integrating the overall project into the landscape and accentuating the spectacular scale of the stadium, which seems to crown the project.
