In recent years, the evolution of sports and its economy has revolutionized its architectural representations. Leading to identity, the stadium which is located on the outskirts has became a parallel singular object, but it still remains an unconnected element of urban life.
The main idea of our proposal was to use the arrival of the new stadium and make it more than a sports complex by making it a part of the town and giving a new identity for Adana. The originality of the proposal lies in its diversity and the stadium itself includes a hotel which circulations overlook the stadium.
How then do we integrate the new program in the city centre within a dense urban context? Our response was to create a true multi-functional area, including residential buildings, office towers, shops, a basketball stadium, an Olympic swimming pool, walks and recreational areas which connect to the existing urban fabric and ensures a 24h/24 vibrant life of the site. Unlike conventional sports arenas, we also established a strong link with Adana by public squares that open on the horizon, allowing the stadium to interact with the city
