New ideas for the Tivoli sports hall in Stuttgart West | Winter Semester 2021/22
In the winter semester 2021/22, the first IMIAD semester worked on a cooperation project "IMAKE 21" together with the study program ClimateEngineering.
The triple sports hall Tivoli in Forststraße 15 was built in 1986-88 by the architectural partnership Heckmann.Kristel.Jung and is used exclusively for school and club sports. In the 70s and 80s, many sports halls were built in the city of Stuttgart, all of which will have to be renovated in the next few years. The administration, the Office for Sport and Exercise of the City of Stuttgart, is considering not only renovating the energy efficiency of these halls, but also expanding their use. Uses are being considered that promote social interaction in the immediate vicinity of the sports halls, especially in the residential areas. The open spaces around the sports halls are also to be included in the planning. The Tivolihalle is one of these halls that will soon be up for redevelopment. It is located in the west of Stuttgart in the immediate vicinity of the Boschareal. Adjacent to it are a vocational school, elementary school and a high school. The hall was built over an underground garage with shelters. However, not all of the underground garage area has been built over. In the east there is a large elevated open area, so far without use. This area should be included in the considerations to expand the existing space program.
Together, the students developed new ideas that exemplify how sports halls can be further conceived in the future, taking into account the previous use under the motto For each other and Together. The building should also set standards in the use of resources. The topic of sustainability should be part of the program for every measure envisaged. IMIAD and KE students contributed their specialist knowledge to jointly design the new Tivoli Hall.
The semester design was supervised by Prof. Diane Ziegler (IMIAD), as well as Prof. Volkmar Bleicher and Prof. Ralf Petersen (KE).
The ever-growing community of the world's population is increasingly drawn to cities. In these hubs, people live in a dense space and are increasingly confronted with problems due to the form of organization. These are social, climatic and health problems, which can be reduced by integrating nature in the city. Therefore, in order to plan a sustainable city, the basis for more nature must be created today.
As part of the IMAKE cooperation project, the holistic "4 Hall" conversion concept for the Tivoli sports hall in Stuttgart's west has been created. The design offers space for joie de vivre as well as diverse sports with a focus on a sustainable vision for the revitalization of the neighborhood with benefits for young people, athletes and the neighborhood. In addition to manageable architectural interventions and additive measures in the outdoor space, the hall's existing structure was also reorganized and rethought, and the energy concept was redesigned.
The focus of the project was to achieve a large impact through the most minimally invasive approach possible in order to best meet the goals set: to develop a holistic architectural concept, to improve the quality of stay, and to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions. The design pays attention to a maximum gain in use with minimal intervention, with a constant eye on feasibility. Minimally invasive solutions have the potential to significantly reduce or keep CO2 emissions and costs low. The result shows that even with comparatively small interventions in the site's existing structure, a great deal of added value can be created for the general public.
