Description
The goal of enhancing the human experience and appreciation of sports, leisure and recreation and the need to ensure equal, dignified and functional access to sport and leisure facilities are fundamental to the IOC, IPC and IAKS. This includes access for all citizens, regardless of their physical abilities, as well as the protection of the environment through skilful design, the use of materials, and creativity.
For many cities aspiring to become healthy places with pleasant living conditions, sports, leisure and recreational facilities are becoming increasingly important. The IOC, IPC and IAKS are calling on young architects and designers to dedicate their enthusiasm and imagination in the creation of areas and spaces for active life-styles.
In recent years, the IOC has placed an increased focus on youth participation in sport through a number of activities. It is the shared aspiration of the IOC, IPC and IAKS for young architects who create sporting environments for all citizens at an early stage in their career will continue this practice in later years so that inclusive design becomes second nature to them.
