Metric Handbook – Sports Facilities: indoor and outdoor
The Metric Handbook is the major handbook of planning and design data for architects and architecture students. Covering basic design data for all the major building types it is the ideal starting point for any project.
Sports Facilities take many forms but Chapter 18 has been written by Populous to provide guidance for their technical design whether they are used for competition, training or recreation. The guidance is set out starting with the key dimensional data of the field of play for each sport, followed by principles to be applied to the design of viewing structures, and lastly the accomodation for the various users of the facility.
