ar·chi·tec·ture: n.The profession of designing buildings, open areas, communities, and other artificial constructions and environments, usually with some regard to aesthetic effect.
This year your Architecture Team’s challenge is to create a multi-plex sports arena that caters to traditional AND non-traditional sports. Choose a minimum of 4 sports to be represented. Your maximum number is limitless! Remember you can include ANYTHING considered to be a sport. Consider who will be the sponsor of the arena and which sports will be featured. The featured sports should be the focus of the arena. Spaces like locker rooms, training areas, a lounge, concession and sports shop should also be incorporated into your team’s design.
Research historical and contemporary artists/architects as well as the plethora of sports that exist in the world today. Consider what climate and landscape will best accommodate the sports you will feature. You may incorporate alternative energy sources into your design. Build a scale model of your design. Your sports multiplex model must not exceed 4 feet in any direction (height, width, length), and your entire model landscape must not exceed a total of 16 square feet. Your model may be of the materials of your choosing. If water is part of your architectural design, it should be simulated with other materials when exhibiting your entry.
