This project is included in the theme ” Nature in town for a united city” and the project in urban planning RECSport, an urban design based on rallying the different polarities of Algiers, Algeria to our site Delybrahim. The project in itself was thought to promote life in community, sports and events. The choice was made mainly due to the presence of the national stadium of the 5th july which suffer of inactivity and physical and functional barriere with the rest of the urban developement.
Handy sport is a prototype of sport facility designed for physical disabled person (neuromotor disease which limit a person to move a part or their whole body), which doesn’t help this community to have a life by the “healthy” people standards and prevent them from creating social relationship and keep a regular physical activity.
Sport by itself is a pilar of human well being and society wellfare, it helps both the physical and mental health of a person. Therefore it is the main subject of this project.
the 3 main goals of the facility :
- Promote physical activity for evry kind of person as a mean to upgrade their lifestyle and their self-esteem.
