BIVAK‘s proposal for the rowing championship has been initiated by the hungarian rowing association (MKKSZ), challenging the architectural standards required for this sports. the team has firstly developed an installation that provides transparency — by creating specific spaces for competitions, athletes and visitors. following the rules of orientation, the structure would be placed at the top of the splitter island. in the ned, all functions have been combined into one stretched floor that is elevated with pillars.

’emblematic bridge-like ‘building’, a penetrating, sustainable, well usable, potentially developable, airy facility. the site plan is remarkable because it specifies three different areas: visitors, competition and athlete zones. the winning proposals’s tower expands horizontally harmonising with the track landscape and making no obstacle for the wind. such a unique mindset has never been realised at any rowing tracks of the world before…’,  as expressed by kálmán petrovics — president of development at the hungraian rowing association-MKKSZ
