Erzurum Ice Rink
Ice Rink, Erzurum, Turkey
Erzurum, a province of Turkey in the Eastern Anatolian Region is located at the Palandoken Mountain range, a renowned winter sport destination. This proposed ice rink was designed as a multi-purpose arena to host a number of winter sports including ice hockey and ice skating. Exposed curved laminated timber beams will create the primary structure and aesthetically provide a unique, hull-shaped form, representative of the original structure of Viking Longboats - a reference to the ancient peoples contact with the Black Sea region of Turkey.
