Designs on Valencia 2007

Friday 25 Nov 2005

David Chipperfield Architects in collaboration with b720 Architects of Barcelona have won an international limited competition for Valencia’s America’s Cup Pavilion. This permanent building and associated landscape will form the VIP social focal point for the world’s premier offshore racing competition, staged in Europe for the first time in 152 years following Swiss Team Alinghi’s win over Team New Zealand (2003). The design concept of the pavilion was conceived as a series of stacked and shifting horizontal planes, which create shaded, uninterrupted views. It consists of a 10,000m² 4-floor pavilion containing restaurant/bar facilities, conference facilities, shopping and a top floor viewing penthouse.
