DESCRIPTION
 
The City of Jaca Hockey Arena has been the most representative facility of the European Youth Olimpic Festival of Jaca 2007, the first event in the Pyrenees. Two ice rinks allow the pavillion to celebrate hockey, figure skating, short track curling competitions, while being simultaneously a recreational ice center. The building has reinforced the relevance of the ice in Jaca. It has regenerated an undeveloped area of the city and it has become a successful point of reference for Jaca's future.
Through the spirit of the First Winter Games, the project suggestes the idea of natural landscape recovering its great relevance in this kind of indoor activities.
The Dome takes the strength of the nearby Oroel Mount and the Pyrenee peaks, and meets directly the ground without any sort of façade. As a drop of water, the content is contained by no container at all.
The membrane is perceived as a soft Ice crystal, and it must be crossed to enter, like a natural experience. This membrane groups roof, facade, structure, lightning, electrical, security and air conditioning systems (the latest included into the main structure), and organizes the movements and uses of the pavillion.
Under that delicate efficient shell there is only concrete, brick and ice, with no constructive details.
