Football Stadium Gandiole, St. Louis, Sénégal

On behalf of the non-profit organization “Aide Gandiole” we designed a modest football stadium for the town of Gandiole and its football club. The project basically consists of two walls around a soccer field, the outer wall and the dividing wall between the playing field and the spectator zone. Both walls are connected by a tribune. The outer wall of the stadium is made of bricks designed specifically for this building. They are arranged so that they form a non-repetive relief and allow different degrees of transparency. Two gates to the north and south provide access for spectators (north) and players (south). Four buildings adjoining the outer wall house the entrance area, the cloakroom for players, the toilets for the spectators and an office with storage space for the sports club’s materials.
