The design commissioned for The Pods Sports Academy in Scunthorpe was won in an open competition in 2007. It is a series of unified spaces enclosed within an envelope of undulating domes. Structural challenges included complex formfinding, design of the interfaces between spaces, nodal connection design for fast, safe construction and cladding. The project opened to the public in July 2011.
