block architects completes the Sports Complex in Brest, France 

The project is a sports complex at Brest (in Brittany on the western coast of France ). This sports complex, destined to host regional competitions and the city’s various sporting associations, consists of a main sports hall extending over 1,000 square metres, a second one of 650 square metres and a multi-functional hall covering 170 square metres, surrounded by a green area and parking for 40 cars. These volumes, regulated by sporting standards, are adapted to the topography of the original site and seem to be packaged in a skin of printed concrete; a large shoe box textured with the famous diagonal Adidas stripes. The design appears as a hybrid form that lies somewhere between an industrial hangar, the generic image of sports graphics and a bunker.
