SPECTATOR SPORT...

The Olympic FANBOX competition challenged participants to create a temporary and iconic structure with an exciting 24×7 stadium-like atmosphere where spectators of the 2016 Summer Olympic Games could gather to watch multiple live marquee events in one central location.  Rio de Janeiro’s renowned Copacabana Beach was the specific FANBOX competition site. The structure was then also to be replicable in cities across the globe for fans all over the world to experience.  Participant cities would choose a significant public space to host the FANBOX as a temporary installation during the Games.  Our proposal begins with designing a structure that works with various site conditions globally.  A circular stadium-like structure with multiple access points was developed to allow fans to flock from all directions into the FANBOX, allowing flexibility and optimal circulation that can be easily integrated with various sites.  In addition to the stadium atmosphere which includes live screenings and performances, the competition required support program containing a catering area, a museum, and an information and merchandise area.  By elevating the stadium seating, the support program can fill in below, and be more easily accessible at the ground level.  In an attempt to create views over the internal program and surrounding landscapes, the vertical circulation leading up to the seating is expressed through dual spiraling 1:20 accessible ramps around the perimeter of the structure.  The colored ramp forms also pay tribute to the iconic Olympic rings.  By carving away sections of the stadium seating, we create more sight lines through the structure while synchronizing with the spiraling ramps.  Finally, a tensile canopy over the structure allows for the live games’ screenings for the FANBOX spectators in and around the pavilion to enjoy.
