Architects reveals greenhouse-like technology hub to accompany world’s first wooden football stadium

VIA DeZeen

Zaha Hadid Architects has unveiled a set of glasshouse-like technology buildings and a slatted-timber footbridge, which will join its wooden football stadium on a eco park in Gloucestershire, England.

The humpbacked bridge will span a motorway to link the two parts of the Eco Park near the town of Stroud: one area dedicated to sports and another for technology.

The London-based firm has designed the primary components for both areas of the park. Having previously released plans to build the world’s first timber football stadium there, the studio is now proposing a series of glass and slatted-timber buildings for the park’s Green Technology Hub.

Strips of timber covering the facades of some of the buildings in the technology hub match the materiality of the bridge and the undulating bowl of the stadium, visually tying the sporting and technological elements of the site together.

“The Green Technology Hub proposals apply the latest sustainable design technologies with ecologically sound materials and construction methods to create an integrated community for world-leading research and development,” said Zaha Hadid Architects.
