IAKS Congress PROGRAMME


24th International IAKS Congress 2015

Attractive spaces for physical activity, sustainability, optimal training conditions, economic benefits – the demands on a sports facility are numerous; attempting to meet all these demands equally is like a balancing act. The 24th International IAKS Congress, held from 27 to 30 October 2015, offers potential solutions and inspiration. In their lectures speakers from 45 countries will present a variety of examples of the architectural and operational solutions that are available in their respective countries.

Dr Stephan J. Holthoff-Pförtner IAKS President

People practice their sport and leisure activities in the most varied places. The 24th IAKS Congress displays trends and best practices for a variety of these spaces. The spectrum ranges from new approaches to traditional sports grounds, equipment for colleges, universities and schools, to stadiums and arenas for major events, as well as urban adventure areas and open spaces. The focus is on the following aspects – how maximum sustainability can be achieved, how architecture contributes to the development of healthier generations, how sports facilities can act as a catalyst for a region and how sport centres contribute to creativity, communication, contribution and participation. This year the IAKS will have been in existence for 50 years. When on 28 May 1965 18 European sport venue experts resolved to found their working group in Düsseldorf, no-one could have foreseen the international network of specialists of today. At the opening ceremony of the 24th IAKS Congress, IAKS will remind those present of the most important events from the five decades of the sector. You can look forward to finding out which sports facilities will receive the „IAKS All Time Award“. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the IAKS, significant sport and leisure facilities of the last decades will be recognised. The people who in the last 50 years have contributed outstanding services to the sector or to IAKS will also be honoured. They will be accepted into the „IAKS Hall of Fame“. The award ceremony for this year‘s IOC, IPC and IAKS architecture prizes will take place on the evening of 27 October 2015. Prizes will be awarded for exemplarily well designed as well as functionally accomplished sport and leisure facilities. They will be presented to the public of the FSB at the IAKS exhibition stand. Six of the award-winning designs and schemes will additionally be presented in detail by the architects and operators in two Congress sessions. You have lots of initiatives and solutions for the construction and operation of sports facilities to look forward to. Use the 24th IAKS Congress to exchange experience and enter into an active dialogue with experts.


Welcome address from the IOC

On behalf of the IOC and the Olympic Movement it is with great pleasure to congratulate the International Association for Sports and Leisure Facilities (IAKS) for its 50th anniversary which makes this Congress particularly special. Since 1965, IAKS has played a leading role in the industry of sports and leisure facilities.

Dr Thomas Bach IOC President

The IOC has been proudly supporting the IOC/IAKS award and the IOC/IPC/IAKS award for young professionals for many years. With nearly 130 projects entered in the IOC/IAKS award contest and with 40 projects from young and talented architects and designers in the IOC/IPC/IAKS award category, the jury was spoilt for choice with so many great and sustainable projects to choose from. This anniversary is a moment to look back with pride at your achievements and to look forward confidently to the future in a changing world. At the IOC we are doing this with Olympic Agenda 2020 – our strategic roadmap for the future of the Olympic Movement. One overarching theme of Olympic Agenda 2020 is sustainability. Sustainability for the Olympic Movement and the Olympic Games means embracing a holistic concept of respect for the environment, feasibility and development, and to ultimately leave a lasting legacy. Society today demands more from sports organisations and sports events. We need to respond by embracing sustainability and delivering positive, long-term legacies for the local population. At IAKS I encourage you to play your part in achieving this goal. I wish you a successful Congress and fruitful exchanges over the next three days – and another 50 years of successful IAKS initiatives.


Welcome address from the IPC

On behalf of the International Paralympic Committee, I would like to congratulate IAKS on your 50th anniversary and say what an honour it is for me to deliver this welcome address at the festive opening of the world’s ultimate gathering of sport and leisure facilities. In my opinion, landmark anniversaries are the perfect occasion to reflect on achievements so far and to look ahead and plan for the future. Last September, the IPC celebrated its 25th anniversary with a three-day gathering of our membership in Berlin.

Sir Philip Craven IPC President

The meeting was highly productive. It gave our members an opportunity to share their views on the IPC’s future strategic direction and the IPC a chance to test ideas that would eventually make it into our recently published four year Strategic Plan. Part of the event was a Gala Dinner which charted our 25 years of achievements and featured messages of congratulations from the likes of IOC President Thomas Bach, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and even US President Barack Obama. I have to say it was one of my proudest ­moments as IPC President. One of the outcomes from the event was just how many people outside of the Paralympic Movement now regard the Paralympic Games as the world’s number one sporting event for driving societal change. Not only have the Games in recent years led to seismic shifts in attitudes towards people with an impairment but to major changes in how host countries of the Games approach the design and construction of sport and leisure facilities, especially in terms of accessibility. Places such as Beijing, London, Sochi and Rio next year now have far more barrier free inclusive venues than before, just because they have hosted or are set to host the Paralympic Games. It is because the Games can have such an impact on architecture that the IPC values so greatly our long-term partnership with IAKS and its President Stephan J Holthoff-Pfoertner. We share a common desire for creation, innovation and excellence and through the IPC/IAKS Distinction for Accessibility award we recognise and celebrate building design that blends efficient engineering together with human understanding and inclusivity. In my view all sport venues and leisure facilities should be accessible for all; it should not take a country to host the Paralympic Games for this to become a possibility, never mind a reality. To finish, I would like to thank everyone who entered the awards this year and pass on my sincerest congratulations to all the winners. Thank you and happy 50th anniversary IAKS!


Welcome address from the Federal Minister of the Interior

The International Association for Sports and Leisure Facilities or IAKS is 50 years old this year. The 24th IAKS Congress in Cologne will duly celebrate this anniversary. And it is for this reason that I am delighted to continue the long-standing tradition of acting as patron of what is probably a unique international event.

Dr Thomas de Maizière Federal Minister of the Interior

Sport encourages achievement and competition, teaches fairness and teamwork from a young age and creates a sense of belonging – in clubs, on the national and international levels. Sport thus has important social functions and reaches out well beyond sporting competition itself. In increasingly diversified societies, it fosters cohesion, brings forth positive role models, communicates shared values and, in doing so, facilitates integration and mutual understanding. Government on the federal and Land levels therefore ensures that the necessary funds can be invested in mass sport and elite sport. Mass sport and elite sport and particularly the record achievements of our athletes are only possible if we in Germany have advanced sports facility infrastructure providing optimum conditions for training and competition. The preparation of our top athletes for the 2016 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games in Rio is well underway. For this, numerous hypermodern sports facilities are available that make targeted training for top performance possible. The Federal Government intends to continue its commitment to making available and upgrading the internationally competitive sports facility infrastructure in Germany. I am convinced that we shall succeed and wish everyone attending a successful time at the Congress.


Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the IAKS!

“The IAKS and Koelnmesse are united by a close and trusting partnership, particularly in connection with the international trade fair FSB, stretching back over 46 years. For Koelnmesse, this cooperation means continual enrichment with new topics and forms of communication.”

Gerald Böse Koelnmesse

“Congratulations on 50 years of pioneering vision and especially on the already completed sports facilities worthy of prizes. I wish the IAKS that it will continue to succeed in motivating its members and all parties involved in the construction of sports facilities to work together constructively.”

“We wish the IAKS that it and its members will continue to participate in the sports policy debate and, with its knowledge and experience, ensure that sports facilities are designed with sustainability in mind, offer safe access to all people and encourage many to switch camps from passive spectating to the active pursuit of sport. The sports scientists and physical education instructors of the ICSSPE network will continue to be available for joint projects and wish to join with the IAKS in encouraging healthy socio-economic trends in human society.”

Detlef Dumon

International Council of Sport Science and Physical Education (ICSSPE)

Jürgen Roters

Lord Mayor of the City of Cologne

“For the VDEM, the IAKS is an important ally in the activities of employees at ice sports facilities. For the future, we wish the IAKS to continue to have such active, inspired and motivated employees in its team for the advocacy of the interests of artificial ice rinks in all areas.”

Dieter Matz

Association of Ice Rink Managers (VDEM)

“The German Olympic Sports Federation wishes to warmly congratulate the IAKS on its 50th anniversary. The IAKS has repeatedly given impetus to international sports facility development over the five decades of its existence. Through trade fairs, congresses, seminars and publications, it creates the necessary expert forums and always includes sports facilities of all kinds in its focus – everything from Olympic stadia to club sports grounds and school gyms. We wish the IAKS plenty of energy and much success for the future.”

Dr Michael Vesper

German Olympic Sports Federation


Harald Bauer

International Workers and Amateurs in Sports Confederation (CSIT)

Walter Schneeloch

North-Rhine/Westphalia Land Sports Federation

„The role of the IAKS as an interest group for and adviser on sports and leisure facility development is of great importance internationally, as its experience and study findings have huge relevance to social policy. Its recognition by the IOC and its close networking with international organisations and sports federations has thus shifted the IAKS into the limelight. Our congratulations and best wishes on your anniversary!“

“For 50 years, the IAKS has been synonymous with the transfer of knowledge between academics, specialised companies, and operators and users of sports and leisure facilities. North-Rhine/Westphalia’s Sports Federation as the umbrella organisation of sports clubs in NRW gladly draws on the IAKS’s expertise in its search for sound answers to questions concerning the design, construction, modernisation and management of sports and leisure facilities.”

„We congratulate IAKS on the occasion of their 50th anniversary and wish them further successful work in helping to provide standards and guidelines for the construction of sports facilities. These are of utmost importance for a safe and level playing field across all sports.“

Imre Mátraházi

International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF)

„On its 50th anniversary, we wish IAKS the continuation of its successful approach in the development of sports and leisure facilities. Without IAKS’s continuous hard work to bring to public attention multi-sports venues with the most incredible architectural designs while incorporating sustainability, the protection of our environment and accessibility for all sports and people, the International Sports Federations would not be aware of these spectacular facilities.

Karen Strahl

International ­Basketball Federation (FIBA)

IAKS’s awards inspire and motivate young architects to create the most exceptional architecture and this is a mission that FIBA encourages at all times.”

“We wish the IAKS further positive impetus and exciting themes for future projects and particularly, of course, the successful continuation of its internationally leading sports facility congress in connection with FSB. Our partnership dating back to 1969 is almost as longstanding as the IAKS itself. And it has been since then that we have been realising our joint goal, every two years, of making FSB the No.1 trade fair worldwide in its field.”

hsb austria Gmbh

hsb – Europe’s stainless steel pool manufacturer The Austrian hsb Group built the world’s first swimming pool made of stainless steel in Pfarrwerfen (AT) in 1969. hsb has subsidiaries in Germany, France and Switzerland and, with energetic marketing activities, has established steel as the most innovative and sustainable material for municipal swimming pool systems and leisure centres. By consistently focusing on its core business – the construction of stainless steel pool systems for municipalities – and continually refining its products, hsb, with its innovative solutions, has been instrumental in stainless steel’s breakthrough on the swimming pool market across Europe and beyond. hsb has also launched the first pool with curved stainless steel sides in Brühl (DE) in 1989. The pool hydraulics developed by hsb efficiently distributes clean water, even in the context of the provisions of ever stricter standards, such as that for pool operation with a reduced circulation rate. With its expertise derived from over 1,500 completed stainless steel pool systems, hsb advises architects and planners in the choice of materials and the design of such facilities. Experts with many years of experience in the fields of sales, design engineering, production and assembly ensure that projects are executed to the customer’s complete satisfaction. By consistently concentrating on its single stainless steel pool product, the optimum production environment – with the exclusive processing of stainless steel – has been created at its production plants in Vöcklamarkt (AT) and Berlin (DE). To achieve superlative quality, hsb insists on a high degree of prefabrication in the plant shop in order to minimise assembly time, with the knock-on effects of rapid construction, and compliance with deadlines and budgets for the client.
