Stadia Designers Cup ★★★ Everton F.C.

★ ★ ★
StadiaDesignersCup
Everton F.C.

Finally! The Day has become!

There`s few subtle but important changes, so first of all please read the regulations and if you have any questions or thougts - don`t be afraid to ask! First week is dedicated for discussions which might actually affects on regulations.

Now, I`ll lead you trough the regulations and explain each paragraph. Let`s go!

Quote:
1. General provisions

1.1 Competition organisers

1.1.1 Roles


3rd edition of „Stadia Designers Cup” is organised by:
  • Mateusz Cegielski (main organiser);
  • Malden Janković (co-organiser);
  • and Paul Olak (consultant).
further called "Organisers".

1.1.2 Competing organisers

Except main organiser, all others are entitled to take part in competition as a contestants (further called "competing organisers"). However, if any of organisers will decide to submit a competition entry, he is obligated to report it in public in offcial Stadia Designers Cup ★★★ thread on SkyscraperCity.com at least a month before current deadline date.

Competing organisers will lose an orgniser`s privileges after deadline date, i.e. they will not be allowed to see earlier submitted entries by other contestants before the beginning of voting process and will not have access to public and jury vote progress details.

1.2 Competition partners

Official partners of the competition are:
further called “Partners”.
You all know me, you all know Mladen, you all know Paul... I guess there`s nothing new to say. Well, maybe the fact that I as a main organiser cannot take part in competition as a contestant Mladen and Paul can but if they decide to submit their entries, month before current deadline date their co-organiser`s privileges will be limited! Everything is explained in regulations above

Oh, I almost forgot... OStadium, Passione Stadi - welcome onboard!

2. Subject of the competition

2.1 The task

2.1.1 Main task


The essential task in 3rd edition of „Stadia Designers Cup” is to create a concept of a hypothetical new stadium for Everton F.C. at Bramley-Moore Dock site in Liverpool.

2.1.2 Site obstructions

There are two Grade II listed (on Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest) buildings at Bramley-Moore Dock site:
  • the hydraulic tower - cannot be demolished or moved, could be renovated or adapted to more suitable for new dock function purposes (e.g. club pub or fanshop);
  • and dock retaining walls - cannot be demolished (even partly), must retain unharmed.

2.1.3 Optional task

City of Liverpool has a chance to host one of the following editions of Commonwalth Games. Therefore, contestants who are eager for challenges may show their visions of the new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock in two different versions:
  • in the athletics mode for Commonwealth Games;
  • and converted into the football mode for Everton F.C. games.
Decision whether the conversion will be permanent or not belongs to the author.

Realization of the optional task gives an opportunity to gain an extra 250 points to final results.

2.2 Concept requirements

2.2.1 Stadium

  • have to fit in the area designated by Organisers;
  • must have a capacity around 55 000 (+/- 5 000) seats in football mode;
  • must have a capacity above 30 000 seats in athletics mode [1];
  • have to provide a possibility of hosting an athletics events [1];
  • have to meet the major conditions of 4th UEFA category;
  • should refers to the history and heritage of Everton F.C. and city of Liverpool.

2.2.3 Branding
  • stadium interior have to be decorated in “Stadia Designers Cup ★★★” branding;
  • competition and partners logotypes are available in “Attachment B - branding”;
  • competition and partners logotypes can be used only in color variants available in “Attachment B - branding”.
Huh... Here`s the part which about I expect the most question In brief: everyone has to design ~55 000-seater on which Everton F.C. could play its games in Premier League and European Cups.

What`s going on with this "athletics mode"? Keyword: Commonwealth Games. City of Liverpool wants to organise one of the following editions and it would be silly to build dedicated olympic stadium only for one event (what`s up London? ). So here`s two possible scenarios to solve this situation:
  • Manchester 2002-2003 way: build a stadium which is capable to host an athletic event and then, after it ends - redevelopment to permanent football mode.
  • London 2012-2016 way: athletics mode first, then redevelopment which allows to switch between athletics and football mode.

Everything`s clear? I hope so...

To help you design a dream stadium for The Toffees supporters, I tottally reccomend to read the article "A Place to Call Home" by Lyndon Lloyd. It`s really looong lecture but trust me - it`s worth it

3. Competition entry

3.1 Application form

  • architectural boards preferred;
  • entry has to be anonymous [2];
  • entry must be submitted in English;
  • obligatory presentation board ratio is 10:7 (format B); min. size 1772◊1240 px;
  • max. 10 boards named: name_surname_01-10;
  • preferred graphic files format: *.png for raster and *.pdf for vector files.

3.2 Content

3.2.1 Minimal requirements

  • title board with a „full-screen” aerial/bird eye view;
  • one interior view in football-mode;
  • one interior view in athletics-mode [1];
  • one exterior view from human eye perspective;
  • basic masterplan/plan view;
  • one cross or longitudinal section;
  • 2 elevation views (western or eastern, northern or southern).

3.2.2 Recommended requirements
  • title board with a „full screen” aerial/bird eye view;
  • extra aerial/bird eye view from another perspective;
  • two or more interior views (in football- and atheltics-mode [1]);
  • two or more exterior views from human eye perspective;
  • beuaty-shot view [3];
  • semi-detailed masterplan/plan view;
  • at least one cross and one longitudinal section;
  • 4 elevation views [4] (western, eastern, northern, southern).

3.3 Submission
  • submitted design cannot be fully published in the internet/media [5] before voting process begins;
  • each contestant is entitled to submit only one entry;
  • entry must be sent by e-mail at [email protected] until 18 VI 2017, 23:59.59 CET;
  • message topic: Competition entry – name surname;
  • contestants are obligated to attach signed declaration, available in „Attachment C - declaration”;
  • entry without signed declaration will not be accepted.

3.3.1 Copyrights and personal data processing
  • copyrights to submitted design remains the property of the author;
  • published entry will be signed by contestant`s name and surname after announcing its final position in ranking;
  • signing a declaration is tantamount to the permission to publication of the entry in the internet/media by Organizers and Partners.
Two important things here...

Why presentations have to be anonymous? Two Public Votes behind us and statistics shows that voters very often doesn`t look on design but on the flag next to designer`s name. I hope making presentations anonymous will make Public Vote more objective.

Second thing is proportions of presentation boards. Please keep it in format B (10:7 ratio). It would really makes things easier when it comes to present efforts of your work.

Your "must have" pack.

Land plot doesn`t includes tower and walls models. You`ll have to recreate them by yourself in places marked on red or wait for an update (sorry guys, lack od free time! ).

Area designated for works is also an unsure thing... There`s no official informations where the exatcly is the border of the study. We only know that stadium will stay in place of filled Bramley-Moore Dock. Rest is based on the assumption.

I think I will wait for the updated plot.

That being said, I am really happy with the change to anonymous entry - let the designs be judged on their merits, rather than the designer's nationality.

I'll definitely be taking on the conversion - but who said you can't design for both athletics and football? London may have done an awful job of it but it can be done. And concerts - can't forget about those!

More seriously though, I had a wave of inspiration whack me over the head last night so I have a basic idea for the venue in mind. It's well suited for me to try out my design ideas I've been holding onto for a little while, so I will do that.

Good luck to everyone involved in the competition.

Stadia Designers Cup ★★★ Everton F.C.

I've got a good idea of what I'm going to do and I'm really excited to see what others come up with

I have one (simple) question though, are we allowed to dig down so that the lower tier is below ground level?

This would mean that when it's in athletics mode, the track Is on ground level if it covered the lower tier or does the water table mean we aren't able to do this?


EDIT: I'm also going to wait for the detailed site before I start hint hint

Information for those who preffer to wait for updated land plot model: around the weekend... not earlier.

As you can (or actually can`t) see there`s no info about #sdc3 in social media or on our partners sites. I`m really swamped last few days and I`ll do my best catch up on everything on weekend!

I don`t know who but it wasn`t me Singapure Sport Hub is a perfect example how to deal with conversion between modes.

It`s XXI century.... Technically it`s not a problem but that solution would require some really ground stabilizations. Also, if you want to dig down you can`t forget about the fact that river is very, very close So floods, etc. That`s a toughy

P.S.
Today I`ll get back home same late as yesterday (~10:00 PM CET) or even later (sic!) so don`t except many activities from me before this hour

I once made an athletics track and field model with exact dimensions that you might find useful for this competition.

@Liverpudlian82 - Very nice! I wish I had seen that yesterday when I made mine - Google's is massively too narrow and out of proportion for it to be used in this competition.

@MaTTiC - Don't sweat it - we've all got plenty of work to get done on our projects - they're just a couple of props to finish the project with. Go have a game of tetris or something

I've just completed the layouts for my lower tiers and they come to 22,580. Definitely on the right track when it comes to getting to 55,000.

Talking shop for a moment, I have genuine concerns about access and egress onto the site - you've got two small access points to get 55,000 people in and out of the site. A fire or bomb could prove truly devastating and I don't see any easy way to prevent that, short of secondary access routes through Wellington Dock. Add to that - how do people get there? Parking is going to be a problem and there's limited public transport access in the surrounding area. Add on that the footpath is very narrow at the front of the site and people will be queued up onto the street most likely.

There`s a lot of assumptions and future roads plan in docks area is one of them. Of course if Everton would build a stadium in BM Dock, Regent Rd and whole area around would change a lot.

Here`s short, but important hint what City has in plan to do with this area.

Also, I`m 99% sure that "Ten Streets" program includes redevelopment of Regent Rd so don`t get attached to nowadays look (old garages, hangars, etc.) of this area.

It goes without saying - the whole area at present is depressing. Between that and the Liverpool Waters project, there should be enough additional development to support the stadium - and I imagine greater pedestrian access to Sandhills station will improve transport links. As it stands, the project would collapse upon itself if things stayed as they are now.

It`s so quiet here... Don`t you have any questions or you`re not interested in competition at all?

FYI Corrected version of land plot should be ready in max. two days. Adding walls and gates was easy but hydraulic tower is a pickle...

Also, I think that it`s gonna be helpful for you guys if I`ll precise what can and can`t be done outside the walls. It`ll make you easier to plan an acces to the stadium.

Note for mod: Apologize for DP!
