Located in a natural environment, this athletics track emphasizes the existing landscape values and brings the athletic races closer to nature. The track is located in a large-leaved oak forest clearing. Contiguous, distant and remote forests establish a relationship between the track and the forest, enhancing the stands as small terraces or as slopes between clearings.
Its equipment, in addition to containing the functional dependencies, is interrelated with the extension of the walls, the slopes and the ramps that form the slope from the access to the track; it is the big door that leads to the races, a filter between urban and nature. The door is a large roof suspended by two orthogonal walls, on one of which a glass enclosure is supported so as not to break the visual continuity or to collect the reflection of a forest that has determined the entire project.
