The designed elements are derived from both the existing site conditions and the desire to improve the space, a threshold to the stadium.
A building that acts as a boundary becomes a type of wall, having two very pragmatic sides. Therefore, in this case, these elements must also function as a filter. The challenge is to design a boundary or an edge condition which defines the site, in addition to framing the views and allowing people to pass through these thresholds.
Likewise, circulation also helps to structure the site. The designed buildings allow for persons to pass along as well as to pass through. The elements placed onto the site allow for both formal and direct paths through the site, as well as more general and autonomous approaches to the stadium, located on the edge of the site.
