Athletics Exploratorium


A welcoming athletics facility with a twist on traditions for all the townspeople

The students whizz through a landscape of physical challenges at high speed just like a ball in a pinball machine. The athletics facility at the University of Southern Denmark in Odense twists traditions and the linear disciplines in a rolling terrain with grass, lupines and trees. The classic races, throws and jumps are combined with unconventional obstacles along the way. Students jump over the sandy slope and run around in the steep running bowl. The Department of Sports Science and Clinical Biomechanics use the facility as an outdoor laboratory and they have testing equipment, crossfit elements and an instruction room. It is also an open sports playground for the townspeople and passers-by. The daring grapple with the obstacle course’s 12 challenges, while roller skaters let the light guide them in the dark. It’s always athletics-time here.
