The Arena replaces the former Ion Moina Municipal Stadium in Cluj- Napoca, after the decision of laying up, demolition and modernization attempts that preceded it. The place has gain its name “at the stadium” and was considered by the Cluj City sports fans a sacred space and even a redoubt to be defended when the idea of a new Stadium was born, but placed in a different location.
The concept is based on the integration strategy of the Arena within the city’s main promenade that starts at the West end of the Historic Center with the Central Gardens, and continues in the Municipal swimming pool areas and the stadium unto the group of buildings formed by Horia Demian sports hall and the group of natation of the Technical University, being followed by the Iuliu Hategan Sports Park including the sports facilities of the Babes-Bolyai University and then continues the Rose Park, managed by the City Hall and a Tennis Club.
This transparency aims primarily the visual and mental permeability designed to maintain constant relationship between the public and the magic green rectangle of the grass court or the athletic track. At the city scale we experienced the need of a symbolic contemporary landmark, for which we have chosen a fluid and flowing of forms answer, a macro-relief with a strong connection to the meander of the Somes River. At the location scale we have significantly decreased the volume on the contact areas with traffic from North to South, fragmenting after a strategy for diagonal symmetry. We have chosen a white sheet with gold irisations that reflects the sky colors and the surrounding environment.
In darkness the two possible states have distinct images: a warm light distinguishes every night the rhythms of structure and facades, and whenever the shows enflames the arena, this grows into the largest lamp in the city and is dematerialized by transparency.
