Cox Architecture design pre-manufactured velodrome for 2018 Asia Games

Cox Architecture will create a 3,000 capacity velodrome in Jakarta for the 2018 Asian Games in Indonesia.

According to reports in Australia, where the studio have their headquarters, the project will cost AUS$51m (US$38m, €33.6m, £26.5m) and is set to be completed by June 2018.

Engineering firm Motts MacDonald, Indonesian architects BKM and construction company Wika are all said to be involved.

In order to ensure the quick construction time, a modular structure will be used and readily available materials chosen. The velodrome will have a membrane roof allowing natural daylight into the building, and making the venue glow in the evenings.

Indonesia won the right to host the tournament in October 2014, after Vietnam withdrew due to the high cost of staging the event, and tournament planners have come to view the partial prefabrication of facilities as a way to make sure construction is completed on time.

After the Asian Games, the velodrome will be converted to host multiple other sports and events.

In a statement, Cox sports director Alastair Richardson said, “The spiralling costs of hosting major events such as the Asian Games and the Olympics are leading to the search for affordable design and construction solutions for the venues.

“The design of cost effective solutions utilising pre-manufactured and off the shelf temporary structural solutions will be an important part of providing a sustainable legacy for major events and the cities which host them.”
