The new diving tower for the Rijeka Olympic centre completed by studio zoppini associati 

This angular new diving tower built in 2012 for the Rijeka Olympic centre has 5 diving boards placed at different heights designed according to FINA rules.

The architectural approach taken by studio zoppini associati was to create a cutting-edge facility which is perfectly integrated into the beautiful green landscape of the area adjoining the sea coast.

studio zoppini associati have conceived it as a landmark which engages in dialogue with the existing element, revealing its strong discrete presence.

The team looked back to the primordial diving stage elements at the seaside: rocks. They reinterpreted the natural form of the 'Faraglione', a rock which emerges from the sea side, an icon visible even from the water identifying the sport complex.

The vertical cladding is supported by a two way system galvanised steel frame. This structure will be supported by the horizontal and vertical concrete elements. It is built using aluminium panels and its colour changes in relation to the reflection of sunlight.
