There are only 3 materials used in the scheme - concrete, timber and fabric PTFE. Considering that the site is in the flood plane, we chose concrete in the lower part of the building, as it is one of the only materials which would both, withstand the flood and would be able to be optimized to save material. The timber part is constructed in a self-sustaining modular system, which allows for adaptability in the future. Fabric we considered to be the most economic and appropriate way to span a large distance, and it would acts as an umbrella to the spaces below, solely protecting them from rain.
There is a loneliness epidemic, an obsession with social media and a lack of real human interaction. Experience holidays are on the rise as people are so desperate to escape digitisation and get back in touch with the beautiful world around us. The new stadium for Bath Rugby is a new global attraction in the heart of the city centre.
The focus is on play, social interaction and new viewing experiences.
Within the green tower, meet with friends and play games together, watch the best view of the rugby game, or study in the library gardens. The tower is a beacon for Bath giving people new experiences, entertainment and putting people back in touch with nature, the beautiful city and with each other. A stadium within the city becomes a tool for revitalization, and an opportunity for connections between the community. Defining our proposal came hand in hand with a deepened understanding of the different narratives associated with the activities within the stadium.
Choreography of the masses: The filling up and emptying of the arena, manifested through the flowing, temporal mass of the spectators. The Ritual: The staging of a match and the activity spillage beyond the boundaries of the stadium. Fusion: The opportunity for a multifunctional space, enhancing the quality of life within the city To address Fusion the opportunity for a dual function within the stadium, we bring forward Skeni, the new Stadium for Bath and activated music hub. Integrating the stadium and the Park: It is our ambition to unify the disparate spaces that surround our site into a singular, multifaceted space for the community.
The stadium will form a central nucleus where residents and visitors can gather and engage in a range of holistic well-being activities, including water sports, yoga, cycling, socialising or simply enjoying the open, inclusive space. The design espouses interconnectedness and communality. The need for such a space is all the more pressing given the proposed demolition of the Pavilion, and offers an opportunity to create a more accessible, inclusive well-being hub.
The design builds on the natural and structural features of the space, neatly situating between the green and blue spaces which are proven to reduce stress and sadness. In doing so, the design moves with the grain of the existing area, rather than emerging in opposition to it.
Our ambition is to create a new public gathering space in Bath, defining a space ingrained in the social and urban fabric of the city. The rugby stadium becomes an integral part of everyday life, promoting community interactions, the rugby culture and a strong social agenda. People are losing touch with nature on a global scale, in a world of rapid urbanisation, increasing air pollution and technological advancement.
However, the historic garden city of Bath continues to set an example for integrating green spaces into urban life, and the benefits it can bring. The city centre is pedestrianised, air quality is improving, and the historic parks remain ever popular. The stand itself provides a worldclass rugby facility, as well as a palm house, whilst pavilions within the grounds house a cafe, bar, flower shop, rugby museum, gift shop and a multi-functional space for both performance and hospitality catering on match days. The scheme cleans the air with its diverse range of plants and trees, and breathes life back into a forgotten corner of the city, both on vibrant match days and tranquil weekdays.
Thus, this scheme aims to go beyond sports, creating a platform for all types of entertainment, such as performing arts, literature and music. Acting as a fan zone and space for public screenings during match days, it transforms into a platform for art exhibitions, performances and markets during non-match days. Its shape forms an intimate focus point where it meets the landscape and an open celebratory zone in between the two buildings. Bath has been revitalised through the reinvention of the hot springs for health, pleasure and commercial gain, once defining and now reinforcing the reputation over the centuries as a city characterised by water.
Our response challenges the interaction with the River and the luxury associated with the spa industry.
Student cities: studying in Bath
With the frequency of injuries within rugby, the provision of a hydrotherapy centre in conjunction with the physiotherapy requirements allows the facilities to be used by players, whilst also offering the opportunity for community healing and a public realm that embraces water. The dual functionality of the hospitality boxes as classrooms will unite an online community through the Wellbeing College.
Kr ypte Antrea Antoniou Constantinos Gregoriou Markos Spyrides Jesse Cheung Kieran Tate Krypte aims to create an urban landscaped hill, which echoes the natural forms scattered around the city, and offers a vantage point that addresses them in return. In itself, the proposal intends to create a destination where a pair of spaces, each of a different nature, are in a symbiotic relationship. Space The exterior landscaped hill allows fans and visitors to enjoy a community driven garden and park, providing a significant amount of green space to Bath, aiming to retain the natural aspect present in the Recreational Grounds.
The park becomes a viewing platform for Rugby on match day, offering amphitheatrical-style standing accommodation to fans. Anti-space The internal void is a formal public space which draws on the Romanesque and Gothic styles of Bath with the use of domed and cross vaults. It aims to evoke both a level of intimacy, as well as a sense of monumentality, influenced by the humble yet grandiose nature of various destinations around Bath. This scheme outlines proposals for a Neurological Centre, to accompany the new South Stand, that conducts research into head injury prevention and provides support and rehabilitation for those affected.
Both the Stand and Neurological Centre will be usable outside of match days and aim to engage positively with the community of Bath. It is an essential element and is kept minimal. The building is an extrusion of the topography of the site. They are laterally stabilised by the former and prop up the latter. CANOPY - Shelter This is propped up by a powerful vertical element and organically wraps around the building, playing with the perception of threshold of spaces.

It shelters a space but does not enclose it. We saw a need to revert to simplicity as stadiums are growing larger and becoming more disconnected with the public.
‘Overtourism’? – Understanding and Managing Urban Tourism Growth beyond Perceptions
Our solution was to create two unique identities, the stand and the building, that function as separate entities but work together to create an engaging environment, deviating from that of a conventional modern-day stadium. All enclosed accommodation is condensed into an efficient single block leaving the raw structure of the stand exposed to the open air.
Its form reveals information about its function and creates a strong identity for Bath Rugby with a sense of honesty and openness. Through development of the rib structure, the ground floor is given back to the public creating a protected gathering space for large masses of people and creating a more inviting experience and encouraging use on nonmatch days. People can permeate through the ribs, the stand becomes part of the landscape, integrated into the city of Bath.
The building follows a regular grid so that the interior can be adapted to the ever-changing requirements of the future.
In the building will provide space for a Start-Up hub where new businesses can share ideas and learn the skills to successful run and grow. They will gain exposure and form relationships with the bath community, so they can continue to flourish as an established business in Bath city centre. This will make the Rec a destination on non-match days that celebrates civic pride. The widened level entrances to the site will extend North Parade bridge and branch the divide between the city centre and our site which will act as a catalyst for future developments in Bath.
The experience, atmosphere, community and euphoria that you feel when you are amongst a mass of people, cannot be felt when you watch the game at home. The act of watching rugby live in a stadium becomes a piece of immersive theatre, where the spectators believe that cheering on your team will yield good results. Within a fragmented society that is absorbed in a virtual world, the reconnection to real life experiences is more important than ever before.
Rebranding and reimagining cities
We seek to re-acquaint the masses with the origins of the food they consume. Homegrown Home Ground features a brewery with a large bar, an orchard planted landscape, as well as a hydroponic and greenhouse system that serves a high-end restaurant and cooking workshops. A new pedestrian link from the city centre to the Rec is proposed to improve the connectivity between these important green spaces in the heart of Bath.
Our stand looks to harbour community spirit and reconnect people with each other and what they consume through their love of rugby.

The historic legacy of the Rugby Club and the collective spirit of its fans manifests as a spiritual landmark for the city. The stadium, rooted in its timeless materiality, is intrinsically linked to its context and engages with the elemental properties of its unique position. An additional programme of a new boathouse and rowing training centre further accentuates the link to the city, seeking to activate the river-front and establish a new cultural and social realm. The two programmes work together as a collective celebration of Bath. A rigorous rhythmic and typological sensitivity applied to the proposal creates a formalised internal layout, clearly establishing key thresholds of experience for the user.
Impacts of tourism
The resolute directionality of the bridge through the landscape aims to capture the atmosphere of a match day and direct it into the stadium. A place that is constantly animated and a hub for local events. A place that feels intrinsic to the city and well woven into its network of organised spaces. In addition to the 3, seats provisioned, we have proposed a forum space of over square metres. Bounded to the north by the stadium, to the east by the re-provisioned pavilion and to the south by a new Channel 4 Creative hub and associated start up coworking spaces. This forum space will serve as a hub for public events, being capable of hosting concerts, markets and sports, in addition to its primary use as a game day fan-zone for all 18, fans in the stadium.
The City is a House. The House is a City. The great Georgian precedents of The Royal Crescent and Queen Square form the backdrop for several projects in the year. Well done, one and all!! The Waterhouse etunnacliffe gmail. For two months I lived and travelled in a campervan, surfing every break from Bondi Beach to Byron Bay and experienced its significant impact on wellbeing.
Surfing is an incredibly transformative sport and lifestyle however for so many people it is inaccessible. The ambition is to build a sustainable artificial surf lake and surfing hub to provide more people with the opportunity to experience surfing and the positive impact it has on wellness. Surfing is a growing sport and is being included in the Olympics in So, it will also provide a centre for supporting and inspiring future athletes.
Similarly, the lake has been designed with soft edges to settle into the landscape and the building as another engineered intervention. Equipped with appropriate computer facilities capable of receiving data from international observatories and appropriate for the type of computer simulations theorists would be creating, the research centre would also house an optical telescope with main mirrors of 8. Set in a semi-rural landscape, the research facility would remain accessible to the public.
