© Erieta AttaliText description offered by the architects. The UCPA Sports activities Station Grand Reims is a part of the city growth of the reconquest of the railway banks. The brand new gear needed to be open to town whereas preserving the privateness of water sports activities. We needed to present a beneficiant studying of the sports activities advanced, open, seen, and welcoming. We designed the constructing on a technical foundation to protect the privateness of the swimmers whereas opening city views from the indoor pool.© Erieta Attali© Erieta AttaliBetween urbanity and vegetation, this gear takes place intentionally within the ongoing growth.  Right here, it is about to supply gear that preserves the essentially non-public nature of the aquatic follow, with out limiting the pleasures of sunshine related to the pleasures of water.Website planFloor planThe aquatic advanced mission covers an space of ​​11,450 m² and consists of a big number of packages:- A swimming pool with 4 indoor swimming pools, together with an Olympic-size pool that may accommodate 1500 spectators, and an out of doors pool;- A well-being middle;- An indoor ice rink related to an out of doors ice path;- A racket pole providing 2 padel courts, 4 squash courts, a clubhouse;- A cross-fit space;- A co-working area (shared workspace for hire);- Outlets.© Erieta AttaliThe mission is thus creating on two most important architectural ideas. First, longitudinally, the gear is structured across the corridor between the ice rink, squash rooms, padel courts, and the clubhouse dealing with the sq., to present life to the avenue Jules Caesar and to present views of the gear. The terraced gardens, open onto town, are linked to the north with the outside ice rink. Secondly, transversely, the roof is remodeled into an everyday gentle software, filtered on the Olympic pool, freer within the ludic area. Thus, it’s not a query right here of a “composition” however of a constructing which is predicated on its city scenario to place itself on the service of swimmers and sportsmen, within the high quality of the lights and within the privateness of the place. The unity of the roof-facade, the construction that organizes it, the formal freedom that emerges from it, are on the service of this hyperlink between city registration and the pleasure of customers of sports activities gear.SectionThe giant pleated roof constitutes the signature of the gear and the id of the constructing. Its geometry, apparently very free, arises from two constraints and expresses them in materials and structural unity crossing the Olympic and ludic swimming pools and the supply of pure gentle.© Erieta Attali© Erieta AttaliTo cross the Olympic, coaching, and ludic swimming pools, 7 beams with a span of 90 m to 70 m, type a North / South grid, spaced 8.60 m aside. Between these beams, the place the fabric is much less obligatory, voids are potential with out disturbing the structural functioning: it’s right here that we provide giant catches of zenith daylight. This alternation of full and empty areas, of fabric and lightweight, straight ensuing from the structural scheme of the roof, creates a pure undulation, producing that pleat that characterizes the gear. A colonnade of steel posts helps this roof on the North and South facade. They categorical the help and provides the principle facade this picture of a big public facility open to town.© Erieta AttaliThe roof of the pool pays nice consideration to its materiality. Its prime, primarily seen on a big scale, is fabricated from white PVC membrane which is a fabric able to taking the undulations of its geometry and guaranteeing good sealing. On a small scale, its underside, probably the most seen half is fabricated from wooden cladding. This lath covers the complete inside underside and extends to the south facade.© Erieta Attali© Erieta AttaliThe energy-efficient roof is made up of a excessive capability thermal and acoustic insulation of the opaque components related to inflated and clear “mattresses”,  luminous fractures fabricated from triple ETFE pores and skin. The preparations of those luminous fractures throughout the pool carry beneficiant gentle into the center of the constructing always, relying on the North / South orientation.© Erieta Attali
