Calgary’s new recreation facility program aims to develop centres that will provide accessible recreation opportunities and accommodate a variety of sports at different levels of play, as outlined in the Recreation Master Plan 2010-2020.The Great Plains Recreation Facility, featuring two multi-purpose rinks, brings together ice sport enthusiasts from across the city for hockey, sledge hockey, ringette and figure skating. As a civic anchor of the east City edge, the Great Plains Recreation Facility is a social and architectural catalyst for this industrial area. The project elevates the architectural expression in the area and sets an example for subsequent developments. The area is characterized by large light industrial buildings.

Re-Thinking the ‘Typical’ Arena Plan
This project takes one of the most vital but under-appreciated community spaces (the hockey arena) and inverts its typical planning to create a true civic hub. Recreation facilities are civic spaces that create healthy communities; but their design should also foster meaningful social engagement. A typical arena arranges the team rooms at the center of the facility with seating above or on the perimeter with diffuse social spaces. By placing the changerooms to the periphery, a central social space is created at the ‘Heart’ of the facility. This contiguous warm-side / cold-side viewing creates a ‘place’ for social activity.

基于对城市娱乐活动中心的需求预测，项目预留了临近的场地作为建筑扩建需要，并适当调整建筑外形以适应其未来变化。项目预测将加入新的几何反转外貌建筑综合体，并与现存建筑围合出空间庭院。内部将环绕高档餐厅围合出全新的中央大厅。该建筑为政府所有，交由企业经营。设计师与CanLan Ice Sports紧密合作来保证该建筑的维护，运作及资金收益高效运行。
Anticipating the City’s recreational needs, the project proposes a twin-pad arena with the site designed to allow for expansion. This requirement drove the site and building configuration. Expansion is anticipated by developing a geometry that is ‘flipped’ and ‘mirrored’ to complete the quad pad complex; defining two arrival forecourts. The internal plan would create a centralized lobby around an elevated restaurant space. The project is a city owned facility with secured public ice times but is privately operated. The architects worked closely with ‘CanLan Ice Sports’ to ensure the building was maintainable, operationally efficient, and a good business venture.
