Sportcomplex Koning Willem-Alexander
The sound of sport
When building swimming pools, it can take quite some time until the right materials are found. In large halls with high humidity where it is also warm and stringent hygiene requirements need to be adhered to, the possibilities are rather limited. The Koning Willem-Alexander sports complex realised by architects Slangen+Koenis in Hoofddorp is not only an example of the outstanding durability of ceramic under extreme conditions – it also represents an innovative application in the area of acoustics.
