    Thefunctional program includes a speed track, long jump track, high jump track,pole vault track, shot put and discus throw field, plus a gym for maintenanceand physical preparation, computerized physical monitoring office, socialsupport and medical support.

    Thebuilding is implanted in a 3.690m2 at the base of a slope in terraces whichbear 50 feet high, and that due to its geological origin, forced a rigoroussupport and consolidation, which affected not only the accesses to building,but also the space available for the development of the building.

    The formaland volumetric aspect of the building translates its interior and the specificconditions imposed by the different modalities, resulting three volumes, one isa longitudinal volume, with 10 meters high opened to the landscape, anotherwith variable height that projects theinterior of the racing track and thelast one a “box” that articulates the other two and defines the entrance.
    Themateriality results in the dialogue of textures and color contrast with thediversity of the building, enhancing its opacity and transparency.

    Thematerials employed were face brick in sight, representing the texture and colorof the pre-existing clay soil, concrete in sight, pointing the structuremateriality, and glass, allowing transparency and permeability to the building,especially natural light.

    Integrationinto the sports complex of Jamor resultsin a series of interventions that have been developed over the last 6 years,involving not only the buildings but also equipped urban spaces providing anenvironment that reinforces the formal existence of the building.
