Rowing Centre, Badajoz, Spain, by José María Sánchez García. Photo by Roland Halbe.
The centre for rowing and canoeing provides facilities for elite training and competition, connecting with a nearby race area, pier and car park. The centre is a two-storey building and presents two opposite dynamics: lightness and mass, pavilion and cave. The rowing centre is set on a concrete podium capped by a lightweight glazed upper deck. This forms a platform and belvedere overlooking the water, shore and boats.
