3D Athletics Track By Subarquitectura

Spanish artist Subarquitectura has completed '3D athletics track', a multifunctional course in Elda, Alicante, Spain. Taking the traditionally flat design to - literally - a whole new level, the 400 m track is manipulated to incorporate a changing room into the fabric of the project, resulting in a playful and hilly addition to the circuit.


Exploring the common style that has become a standard for running circuits around the world, the design adds an extended lane that takes off on a tangent from one of the long sides. This new arm is then raised vertically to create a a slight bluff that wraps around the spectators' zone. The raised track also covers a small sheltered changing facility, which becomes an intuitively integrated element in the project. This “3D” tracks also provide a extra challenge for experienced runners.Now have a look at some more picture of such a unique track...
