Grandstand, pit stop and VIP centrepiece, David Chipperfield's America's Cup Pavilion was constructed under extreme time pressure and is now the jewel in the crown of Valencia's ingenious new urban marina: Port America’s Cup. A homage to the speed and elegance of ocean racing with sharp edges and dramatic light and shade.The city invested 500m euros in the infrastructure: the innermost basin of the docks was separated from the container port by an newly built channel, connecting it to the sea. The port is only 3000 meter from the city centre. The architect: “ the brief was to build something exciting where people could congregate to watch the racing. So the idea of using the building to create shaded platforms was important. It has to be place where you can stand outside as much as inside. You’re here to look out at sea and that’s where I put the emphasis. You’re continuously aware of the long view to the sea and on the other side the view into the port.”

you have done a good job. keep it up. magician Philadelphia
