The Palasport Olimpico or Olympic Arena or Palaisozaki (from the name of the architect) is a multipurpose indoor sports/concert arena located at the Santa Rita district in Turin, Italy. The design of the building has been the subject of an international competition , won by a team led by architect Arata Isozaki of Tokyo. The futuristic building looks like a strict rectangular Cartesian coated stainless steel and glass, with a base of 183 to 100 meters. Spread over four levels, two underground ( up to 7.5 meters below ground) and two outdoor (up to 12 meters high ) . The overall length of the plant is about 200 meters..The structure, designed to be a veritable factory of events, using the words of its architect, is completely flexible and adaptable in its internal structure : the arrangement of furniture stands (thanks to a modern system of movable and retractable bleachers and the possibility of temporary movement of a deck), and plant in acoustics ..A kind of magic box, actually designed for an almost infinite potential use postolimpica : ice, various indoor sports, athletics, indoor concerts, shows, conventions, exhibitions, events, parades, shows, religious gatherings, etc..Its maximum capacity is 18,500 seats in concert mode...Taken on a cold hazy morning of April.
