the close collaboration between CEBRA and glifberg+lykke has resulted in a fusion of architecture, design, and function, which forms the underlying DNA of ‘streetdome‘ and binds the entire park together to form an interacting whole. the overall ambition of the project is to set a new set of standards for the urban areas of unorganized sports. thus, the facility is an open playground and social meeting place for different ages and skill levels with strong local roots and an international scope.

the endeavor started approximately ten years ago as an initiative by local activist and chairman of the skatecity association morten hansen, whose vision was to create a cultural hub that incorporates a vast area for activity and recreation. in the planning phase, the design team implemented the ideas from the comprehensive dialogue with a wide range of the building’s future user groups.

glifberg+lykke’s approach for the landscape divided it into three overall sections consisting of the street plaza, which extends around the transitions-based flow section, and the park, which is characterized by ditches and banks. every element and obstacle is shaped for adaptive use so that rhythms and combinations can be explored and discovered over and over again. this allows the architecture to develop over time along with the user’s skill set and imagination, continuously challenging them on athletic as well as creative levels and without an expiration date.

the dome itself is based on CEBRA’s igloo hall concept. to reduce running costs, the complex is unheated and lit primarily through daylight while the surface area has been minimized through its concave geometry. the roof spans 40 meters and allows for a large open space free of load-bearing structures, which can be fitted out for any kind of sports and activities, in this case skateboarding, climbing, and basketball.

the igloo is adapted to both the site and the specific functions of street culture. on the outside, the massing is an actual part of the park, growing out of the concrete terrain like a mushroom. the framework is designed as a functional part of this context to roll through with banks, stairs and slopes along the rim. inside, a series of pools are crafted out of the floor next to a multi-purpose court and a central boulder containing a performance platform, seating, and bathrooms. wide gates open to the exterior linking each program in a seamless flow of circulation. ‘streetdome’ forms one continuous and varied spatial course, which gives scandinavia a contemporary urban sport arena with unique features and possibilities.
