Description:

PARKADIUM as anti-thesis of the typical stadium typology:


 

Parkadium is a phased project that looks to re-shape the existing Olusosun landfill into a park landscape for eastern Lagos. The new park acts as a public park home to a multi-use stadium, tech-park and markets. Its construction is simple and requires predominantly compact fill and topsoil. Parkadium is a new typology, marrying the visual requirements and broad form of a stadium with the benefits of a landscaped park. A hybrid of modern technologies (waste to energy, high-speed wireless internet, low-energy lighting) and incorporates elements from typologies such as stadiums and amphitheatres with the aim to be accessible to all.
