Sporting halls for Secondary School, Munich

The new building, consisting of a one-pitch and a three-pitch sports hall, fits well in to the neighborhood’s heterogeneous building fabric by its reduced language of form. Like the sports hall of 1965 which it will substitute, the new building comes less high than the adjacent buildings but it forms, unlike the preceding building, an autonomous equivalent which declines to borrow from the school building’s design or to physically connect to it. The homogeneous volume of the roof’s frame hovers above the glazed entrance story and opens up a visual connection from the public space into the school yard.
