New Velodrome for Cycling Ireland at Abbotstown
The National Velodrome: Cooney Architects are the Project Architects for the first Velodrom in Ireland to be located at the National Sports Campus.
The architectural design proposal responds equally to the specific functional requirements and the dynamic nature of the sports of badminton and cycling. Sweeping curved trusses enclose the sports areas, replicating the sweeping curves of the Velodrome track or the fluid movement of the badminton player, to create an atmospheric arena environment.
