Component 2 Sport complex Laurynas Arbaciauskas


Brief, Specification and Location In this project I will be designing a sport complex, exploring the theme of curvature into symmetry. I choose this theme because from previous experiences sport complex tend to be designed within a big square structure which is fair enough as the function of a sport complex requires a lot of area for the different activities such as a basketball court, swimming pool and gym. Furthermore, I choose this theme to enhance the sport complexes exterior design by removing the bold symmetrical design with an extra touch of curvature that makes the design more intriguing and connects the symmetrical shapes in a unique and innovative way. In addition, in terms of interior, there are many activities that have a symmetrical base like a basketball having a symmetrical court and most gym halls being symmetrically layed out. However, while still creating a convenient and still functional sport complex, I want to enhance the design that may have been seen bold to a creative and intriguing design because after all people who spend time working out may appreciate a more intriguing interior as they work out


Generating Idea – shape exploration

Creating paper models gave a better understanding of the shapes that I developed into more realistic and possible structure designs

Casting enabled me to explore curvature while generating unique shapes I used intriguing segments to further explore this idea

Integrating each idea to generate a new


Idea 1 - curvature into symmetry

I liked the mix between the curve on top of the symmetrical shape on the left and I decided to explore this further.

Finalising an initial design

Rotate for more spacious layers

w idea

Going into more detail with smoother curves that peal of the structure enhance the aesthetics of the structure and enables the mix between the two different shapes to blend together nicely.


Using the spearing shapes to connect the two sections with a hallway inside that enables users get around each structure by also having a high panorama around the area that increases the views and enables users to enjoy the environment while walking inside the space instead of having to walk through the outside on a ground level.

In this structure I explore the addition of curvature into symmetry, I really like the mix between the two as it shows creativity and curiosity with smooth lining enhances the aesthetics of the structure instead of having bold blocks the curvature makes the structure intriguing


Generating Idea – shape exploration

With a closer look onto the sculpture I analysed some forms and created this model with the curves connecting throughout and generating this unique but spearing model. Further analyses of the m for the structure which looks interesting and would work with further development. Breaking down the structure with a clear 3D sketch to get a better understanding of the structure and to develop

Using cardboard to cut in some of the curves I analysed from the sculpture. In addition, enabled me to get a new perspective on the curves to further explore and create the unique structures on the right to further implement into my design.


Exploring the drawing with a model to further explore the idea of wrapping curves

model for a more realistic outcome while using already existing buildings to get a feeling the structure to a more realistic design . Exploring the shape from different perspective

Walk through inspired from the wrapping cylinders creating a surrounded feeling for users who walk through have a safer and more aesthetic experience as the unique and free flowing shapes explores curvature and freedom very nicely with an intriguing outcome

Rearranging the model for more ideas to explore and integrate together


Walkway idea exploration Using the tangling and wrapping pipes to further explore the theme of curvature into symmetry, to enhance the aesthetics of the walkway by adding these pipes without interfering with interior and the function, the space is enhanced with creativity as the pipes that create a safe and intriguing feeling for the users. With decorations that explore freedom in such unique movement that makes the space precious for its ingenuity. Turning the walk way to a unique and creative part of the building where before the symmetrical fences looked basic and ordinary and with the mix of curvature with symmetry the space is still functionable allowing people to walk thought but with the addition of the free flowing pipes that could even be developed to water tanks to contain fishes that would really make the structure unique and outstanding. However, with just the pipes the users may feel safer while making the ordinary space to a more aesthetic walkway.

Adding curvature to the symmetrical walkway to show creativity and the theme that turns an ordinary walkway to an intriguing and unique design


Generating main structure with research

To generate a final idea I integrated already explored ideas into one to generate a new structure. Also using secondary research as inspiration and guide how to generate the structure, I found Parc Central design very interesting with curving layers around the Exterior made the structure a lot more appealing and intriguing. Furthermore I took this variant into my design with decorative curves around the structure to connect the two sections of the structure to for fill the theme of curvature into symmetry that explores symmetrical structures to be connected and developed with curving edge


Idea 1 - curvature into symmetry

In this concept I explore a symmetrical base with curving and free flowing shapes around the structure that creates the creative and unique design. Using curvature to connect the symmetrical shapes around the structure created a free flowing flow into the structure with luring and calming curves the structure is more aesthetical which forwards my theme as I wanted to enhance the bold symmetrical building with curvature to make a more spearing and intriguing design while not disturbing the function of the sport complex

Blocks and string exploration

Using blocks and string enabled me to explore my theme even further with string wrapping around the blocks to really sync and turn the blocks into one structure. In addition, the free roaming string showed a nice touch to the structure of creativity and free flow that made this model very intriguing therefore I analyse this model in many ways firstly getting a few ordinary shapes and also a unique layout that I can use further into my design.

Furthermore, using another angle on the structure I again analysed some of the interesting surfaces that I then explored and developed towards a possible idea. One particular idea took my attention with the overhanging layer the structure looked very interesting and with a good mix of curvature and symmetry the theme is starting to present itself in the design of this structure. In addition, what makes this structure so interesting is the opening between the top layer and the bottom two layers which I am going to explore further.


Idea 2 - curvature into symmetry In my research I found a structure called Tencent coastal tower a very interesting concept with a familiar idea I want to use in my design. In addition, the connecting segments enable people to access one another building while not having to go to the leave the building on the ground floor. Furthermore, the concept enhances the aesthetics of the building with an intriguing idea and a good use of wood into the more industrial look and with the uses of these segments the buildings sink in to one as almost they are held and connected to one another. As a result, I explore this idea with curving segments wrapping around the open section of the building to for fill the theme of the design curvature into symmetry that why the segments I used where with a curved edge to smoothen the structure and generate a unique structure with a unique touch that removes the complexity of symmetry and gives the building a creative characteristic. Using some previously generated shapes to explore this concept


Organic inspiration to the wrapping concept

To develop this concept I decided to use a more organic approach with inspiration from leaves I though would work very well as their smooth and soft, very flexible which shows great curvature and a unique touch to the design. In addition, using this leaves enables me to have a more dense shape to potentially give the what was seen as decoration a function, with the Tencent Coastal Tower that used the segments as extensions and walk way to connect the buildings I could also do the same with functioning the segments while considering in design to create a more dense and spacious curves that are ergonomically pleasing to enable people to fit inside.


Exploring the leaves, grew the idea of having a single leaf to be the segment that wraps around both of the structures and connect the buildings in this creative and innovative way. I addition, I particularly like the sharp edge to the segment that really protrudes the curving edge of the design and with a thicker segment the curve appeals more bolder and stands out more enables the creative touch of the design to protrude even more while the density enables users to walk through the segment giving the segment a function


In this model I explore a more curving approach, exploring curvature without the integration of symmetry enables me to create a more complex design that I could then further use to add symmetry and base structure

This concept explores a movement that enables that connects interior and exterior together without the main structure and roof the has a nice connection to the outside which is good especially for a sport complex in which the function can be carried out outside making it easier to fit all activates and not having to design outsized structures

The model explores curvature in which the curves wrap round each other creating an open area with blocked of sections which initially creates a layout while still having that curving edge in the inside of the building

Secondary research The mix between the glass to brick is well balanced and the structure is appealing and well designed, therefore, I want to take this into my design. With bricks around the edges and glass where appropriate with a creative flow

Sport Complex and Swimming Pool in La Florida. Vigo (Spain), in this structure I particular like the wrapping exterior that has been used for stairs and an extension using innovative and intrigue design technique that is space efficient and giving users a better experience visually and physically getting fresh air and better scenery while getting around the structure

The curving roof is well structured from bottom to top it supports itself unnoticeably as the curve uses waves to reach top to bottom while wrapping around the stairs all in one form . Furthermore, the curve gives shelter to the stairs while with a creative design it makes the space more appealing with a creative design.

What I like about the structure is the outer wall that wraps around the main section with a wavy flow that can be used to create a balcony and give way for windows more inner building

Hungerburgbahn Stationen Innsbruck, Austria, although the function of this structure is not similar, I really like the concept between the symmetry of the stairs and the addition of curvature enhancing the space with a roof and aesthetics .


Idea 2 - curvature into symmetry Using the paper curves and the unique layout as a base to the structure, with the symmetrical lines rising up to create the general shape of the structure the paper wraps around the structure presenting the theme of curvature into symmetry

From the staircase I got inspired to have a curve wrapping around the whole building starting from one corner on the ground. From the research I am integrating a wall that shows a good balance and a symmetrical lining between the wall and the glass to give natural light inside the building.

With a vague sketch the concept looked very deceitful. Therefore with a solid design the structure looked more clear and I was able to use this to explore and develop the structure with research.

From the research using symmetrical shapes as an outer wall to cover and support the outside staircase that brings users to the first floor without having to navigate from the ground floor


Idea 2

In this concept I explore a very intriguing design in theme of curvature into symmetry, taking note of Hungerburgbahn Stationen, I have tried to integrate a curve that wraps around the whole structure supporting itself from the ground to wrap around the roof to also shelter and give way for sunlight into the building with an over hang that shelters the outside stair case. The stair case itself I got inspired from the Sport Complex and Swimming Pool to have a staircase wrapping around the exterior with a symmetrical outer wall that hides the stairs.
