Events such as sports competitions, cultural fairs, and political rallies are carried out in a city at state as well as local levels. While the infrastructure for the state’s significant events is well laid out by organizations, the local events are fended for by the community’s collective efforts.
Planned public gatherings are part of community activities. In any event, the participants, audiences, organizers, and service staff are the attendants. The relationship between the participants and their audiences is of utmost importance. The audience may include supporters, family members, local residents, and enthusiasts who are present to witness the performances at these events.
The provisions for performers are well laid out, but the needs of spectators at local events are overlooked. While participants are taken care of by their sponsors, the audiences are dependent on public infrastructure, which is often lacking due to socio-political or economic reasons.
How can the sports spectator experience be improved?
Brief: The challenge is to design a clubhouse that is used as a viewing centre by spectators of an event.
It can also be used for conducting indoor community activities at other times.
The design of the clubhouse must be harmonious with the local context. The space designed must be multi-functional so that it can be used for additional activities, remaining active throughout the year. Safety and security measures must be incorporated in its design since it is a public space entity. Measures must be taken to design within the economic constraints of the local community. The aim of the design is to provide a comfortable experience to the audiences of all types of events.
The design is a small-scale intervention that has the potential to be employed in multiple locations with similar inadequacies. The deck must be such that it offers a better view of the events without being an obstruction to other occupants in and around the site.
