Jakarta International Velodrome
The Jakarta International Velodrome is a vibrant and dynamic stadium – developed primarily as a key venue for the 2018 Asian Games. After the games, the velodrome continues to be used for cycling competitions and training as well as events and court sports, including Futsal.
The design combines a series of earth berms that contribute to the public arrival sequence. The velodrome has a membrane roof and translucent wall cladding above the concourse level that allows natural daylight into the building and creates a glowing lantern-like atmosphere in the evening.
The use of bespoke terracotta blocks surrounding the podium reflects local technology and a cultural commitment to patternmaking.
Located within a broader sports precinct, the velodrome is arranged to suit a master planned experience with focus on a public plaza. The building is a permanent facility; however, the roof technology is based on ES Global Ltd’s kit of modular structural parts – most commonly used in their temporary sport and event buildings.
