Designed for high-performance athletes as well as students and the public, Oriam is organised along two parallel linear routes, separated by an indoor 3g pitch. A disused Victorian walled garden enclosed by a red brick wall is incorporated into the building and forms an edge to the public route, contrasting with the modern facility.
Roberto Carlos magical free kick against France in the 1997 Confederations Cup an equiangular spiral was the inspiration for the cross section of the roof over the pitch. The profile provides a memorable form with a great story to accompany it.
