SPORTS ATTRACTOR HAIKU
The concept for the Spots Attractor is an investigation and development of single surface and incorporate program as the main generator creating a formal architectural and urban strategy allowing for cohabitation of space.
This master plan responds to the development strategy by creating an intensively coherent heterogeneous single surface produced by the integration of several spatial and programmatic systems. A high integration and weaving of various private, semi-public and public programs were adhered to in this project. In addition, a wide array of changing spatial effects occur throughout a twenty four hour and yearly cycle as different architectural and programmatic systems overlap, weave proposed for the Sports Attractor Haiku allow for revenue generating programs to support public sponsored endeavors.
Initial studies of program requirements, including facilities, lighting, surface materials, indoor vs outdoor programs, seasonal requirements were analyzed and charted onto a program matrix. Manipulations of this matrix produced a specific sire and program graft. All aspects of this technique generated a site graft. This resulted in a site strategy of bands of gardens in the North-East to South-West direction and a topographical strategy in the opposite direction allowing programs such as the multitude a various sports facilities to flow seamlessly throughout out the site. The banding and topographical strategy allows for a seamless connection to the Sports Attractor Haiku community while preserving existing wildlife and marshes.
This multifarious integration of differentiated systems of various scales, programmatic, temporal elements produce an architectural and urban form of coherent complexity.
