The agency was called on by the Iraqi Ministry of Youth and Sport to restore the gymnasium designed by Le Corbusier
and built by Japanese architects in 1980.
The project called for covering the external stands and adding a multi-function programme: offices, seminar rooms and
covered sports fields to create a complex able to receive 5,000 people. Guided by the Golden Mean and traces from the
past, the geometry is able to respect Le Corbusier’s initial design.
