The City of Palafolls is located approximately 60km northeast of Barcelona toward the border with France and about 3km inland from the coast of Costa Brava, a celebrated resort.
The site is situated on the outskirts of the old city occupying one block of the city zoning plan. We decided to enclose the almost flat site with a circular brick wall with a diameter of 67.5m covering the southern half with a lattice frame structure and leaving the northern half uncovered to be used as a yard. The form of the roof was determined considering dimensions necessary for various sports events held in the arena, the volume needed for the spectator's seats, lighting, etc. The space frame comprises 1,717 ball joints and 7,298 pipes, and is supported by triangular truss steel column in the northern facade and RC posts ti the brick walls. The dome has a maximum height of 14m. The roof is covered with zinc plates. The semicircular space inside is partitioned arena, and the spaces between the outer brick walls and the concrete partitions are used as spectator's seats, locker rooms, storage and so on.
The dome was designed basically as an indoor gymnasium but may be used for various municipal events such as festivals, concerts, and theaters as it is a splendid combination of an arena and an encircled front yard. It is expected to function as the most important public space for the city.
