项目信息 Project Information
‘The Everyday Stadium’ is the first new public space in Sydney Olympic Park to sit within the framework of the Sydney Olympic Park 2030 Master Plan, the intent of which is to refocus the Olympic legacy of event and spectacle into a finely grained, sustainable town centre.
The project title ‘The Everyday Stadium’ is both an ironic nod to the 2000 Olympics’ legacy and a precise description of the design concept. The morphology of a typical stadium gives the scheme its enduring diagram, ie an orthogonal edge of seats and walls (the stands), framing a large informal open space (the field), and protected by long perimeters of shade – one built and the other trees (the canopies).
In contrast to the stadium buildings and left over spaces of Olympic Park, Jacaranda Square is a mid-scaled rectangular space of 50 x 80 metres, defined by the orthogonal street grid and situated on new abutting train station axis and is being framed on its long sides by new commercial buildings which define it as the pivotal public space of the new town centre.
