Chipperfield completes yachting pavilion in Valencia - image

  • Comment
David Chipperfield Architects has completed the America's Cup Foredeck Building in Valencia.

The building and adjacent park will be the 'social focal point' when the offshore racing competition comes to the city in 2007.

As the centrepiece of the reorganisation of Valencia's industrial port, the Foredeck Building will provide a national base for America's Cup teams and sponsors.

The 10,000m 2four-floor building is composed of a series of stacked and shifting horizontal planes that provide shade and uninterrupted views out to sea.

It has a concrete structure with deep cantilevered floor slabs creating the unobstructed and shaded viewing decks that surround all the floors.
