The structure is located within the premises of the Eryaman Municipality football field, next to the district’s open-air market place. The project aimed not only at constructing a covered grandstand within the football field and at creating space under this superstructure for functions such as supervision of entrance to the field and changing rooms for players, but also at the formation of an urban interface with the district market place.
The sports facility consists of three structural elements: the grandstand, housing below it functions such as the players’ preparation, training and access to the field; the steel and textile membrane canopy; the reinforced concrete-steel composite arcade on the side of the market place. The players’ preparation spaces below the grandstand, placed symmetrically for two different teams consists of vestibule, office, waiting room, toilets, changing room and showers. Entrances to the field are placed on both ends of the structure formed by stone-coated surfaces.READ MORE
