Description
Summary:The sports palace of Urdorf is a complex with various indoor and outdoor sports installations. In the first category are: the sports hall, dividable into two different sporting grounds by means of a partition that is let down from the ceiling; the swimming pool, divided into two zones, one reserved for the teaching of swimming and the other for swimmers; and a sauna for 10 people. In the second category are: a sporting ground, 50 x 30 m, and a 120 m long runway. Both of these are located on the roof of the underground parking place that completes the unit. The building was constructed with prefabricated beams and columns, by means of sliding formwork. The roof is made of panels of isolating cement, which fill a second acoustic function. The facades are entirely of glass, except the western one. The hollows between the structural members were used to canalize all the technical installations of the building.
