The project challenges the inward-focused stadium typology to look outside itself, thus redefining the entire spectator experience. Inspired by the transfer of momentum that occurs in paired track racing, ANTIGRAVITY frames context and program in terms of momentum and utilizes contrasting states as opportunities for developing unexpected spatial and relational adjacencies. Curating the specific physical and visual connections between programs and the site generates a dynamic spectrum of experiences, allowing people to interact with their spatial environments in ways that overturn conventional perspectives -- in short that defy gravity.

Translation of momentum intensity throughout different kind of biking.
