VIDENA Polideportivo

VIDENA's Polideportivo promotes the common theme of the extraordinary diversity of Lima; from the Pacific fog-prone desert coast of Lima to the green mountains of the Andean highlands, to the equatorial rainforest of the north, from gold, silver, copper, iron, zinc and platinum to condors, hummingbirds, killer whales and vicunas.

Pattern designed and delivered a new multi-sport venue for the Pan American and Parapan American Games 2019 in Lima, Peru. Working to an extremely fast track programme, the venue was designed and built in 14 months. The flooring of Polideportivo 3 has been approved by World Skate and is one of only a few venues to have a permanent floor homologated. Fulfilling both international sports regulations and local building regulations was a key challenge.

The venue is centred around a large double-height field of play with retractable seating to provide a flexible competition and training facility. A direct link has been designed to connect Polideportivo 3 to the existing Polideportivo 2. Polideportivo 3 will host Artistic Skating, Badminton and Table Tennis during the games whilst for legacy, the venue will be a dedicated training facility for Karate, Judo, Taekwondo and Kung Fu.
