Comments Off on Sasaki to transform Shanghais Hongkou Stadium with a High Line-esque park

International disciplinary planning and design firm Sasaki has unveiled designs to transform China’s first professional soccer stadium into a sustainably minded mixed-use hub focused on health and wellness. Designed to stitch the Shanghai Hongkou Stadium back into the urban fabric, the proposal will reactivate the stadium as a destination even on non-game days while improving the expanded building’s energy efficiency. Key to the design intervention will be the addition of the Midline, an elevated park built along a light rail corridor, which will provide a green link between Hongkou’s university district in the north and the cultural and commercial districts to the south. Located on a major north-south green corridor, Shanghai’s Hongkou Stadium is accessible via public transit yet suffers from lack of interest on non-game days and lack of connection to its urban surroundings. To reposition the stadium as the heart of a new mixed-use health and wellness hub, Sasaki plans to not only extend the lush landscape of the adjacent Luxun Park to the stadium grounds, but also add the elevated Midline, a recreational spine beneath the light rail tracks that provides pedestrian and bicycle access from the north and south to the stadium. In addition, new shops and restaurants on the street level will activate the stadium’s main plaza and podium. Moreover, the stadium, which was built in the 1990s, will be expanded to a total of 50,000 seats and nine levels to accommodate new programming such as a soccer museum, VIP clubs, community recreation facilities and a cantilevered restaurant with 360-degree views of the field. Rooftop gardens and outdoor concourses will be publicly accessible from the adjacent Luxun Park to attract the community year-round.

Hongkou Stadium reimagines the arena as a multi-functional complex that fulfills the demands of large events while also serving as a unique public space for all citizens.” The renovated stadium will also be optimized for energy efficiency and tap into passive ventilation strategies. Rainwater runoff will be harvested in underground cisterns and reused as irrigation. The stadium’s new smart glass facade can be digitally adjusted to minimize unwanted solar heat gain and used as a digital screen to broadcast events. + Sasaki Images via Sasaki

Oregon Ducks hit a home run with ber-green Jane Sanders Stadium

Comments Off on Oregon Ducks hit a home run with ber-green Jane Sanders Stadium

The Oregon Ducks hit a home run recently with the addition of the Jane Sanders Stadium, a svelte new home for the university’s softball team that’s designed to achieve LEED Gold certification. As a beautiful example of sustainable stadium design, the sports venue features materials with high recycled content, prefabricated construction, and an energy reduction of 35 percent over the Oregon Energy Code. SRG Partnership designed the sustainably minded stadium that perfectly captures the Oregon Ducks spirit. Completed last year, the nearly 200,000-square-foot Jane Sanders Stadium was created as a gift from Robert Sanders and named in honor of his late wife. While sustainability and functionality were priorities in the design, so was brand integration. The University of Oregon’s identifying colors of green and yellow define the 1,500 fixed-seat stadium’s color palette. A canopy clad in home plate-shaped plywood pieces that sits above the prefabricated seating bowl and concourse serves as the iconic focal point, while its wing-like shape alludes to ducks in flight.

The former ballpark’s history is also honored through the restoration of the historic Howe Gates that mark the entrance to the new public plaza from University Street. SRG Partnership designed the stadium to achieve LEED Gold certification and meet the university’s Oregon Model for Sustainable Development. In addition to a significant energy reduction over the Oregon Energy Code, the building also reduces water usage by 37 percent thanks to low-flow fixtures and smart irrigation practices. + SRG Partnership Via ArchDaily Images © Lawrence Anderson
