A series of traditional skateboarding surface typologies were combined to formally generate the walls, floors and ceilings of both the interior and exterior of the sports center, whilst the generic gymnasium programs are nested within and around the skate parks. Certain spaces follow the grid more strictly than others, creating a formal transition between hypostyle halls and free open plan. Through a technique of layering, each floor is formally influenced by the floor above, where the ground of the skatepark becomes the ceiling of a space below.
