TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO SPORTS FACILITIES
JLGA was invited to participate in a design competition for three sports facilities in Trinidad and Tobago where cultural and educational pursuits will also take place.
The design program is based on a central, open multi-use court surrounded by landscaped courtyards and support facilities for sports and community activities. An important element of the JLGA design is the integration of environmentally-sensitive elements such as natural ventilation and storm drainage. The Centers are also designed to utilize regional materials based on local construction methodologies.
The sites are residential in nature and while the design reflects the prominence of the Center as a public space, elements of the facility are integrated into the scale of the surrounding neighborhoods.
