‘The Pitcher’s Mounds’ an Urban Garden Baseball Stadium in Taiwan

 

Soriano & Arquitectos Asociados (S&Aa) has unveiled its plans for ‘The Pitcher’s Mounds’ a project that received fourth place in a competition to design the Tainan Asia-Pacific International Baseball Stadiumsand Training Centers in Taiwan.

In an effort to “return to the origins” of the playing field—a horizontally-based, natural concept rather than the vertical and enclosed idea of a stadium—the design of the complex is conceptualized as an urban garden.

A sports stadium for baseball, soccer, or swimming is not a building. But a landscape instead. Hence, a set of sports stadiums is an urban park, an urban garden –  explains the architect in a media release.
