Exercise is a crucial part of a healthy lifestyle, but going to the gym and continuously following rigorous workout plans can get boring very easily. For people who are interested in all sports Immersive Sports Terrace (IST) offers a virtual sports arena which provides a versatile display that serves as optimal private exercise center.

Kate Mann, the associate partner at Ennead Architects, is the creative mind behind a range of design projects, including the Vassar Bridge for Laboratory Sciences, the William H. Neukom Building at Stanford Law School, and the William J. Clinton Presidential Center. She and her partners – Stefani Fachini, Ursula Trost and Aidan Kim – have utilized virtual reality to make the ideal place for urban youngsters who adore work out, the great outdoors and group activities.

Immersive Sports Terrace (IST) is beyond your expectation of a normal gym. According to Mann, “The IST is a garden pavilion [or outdoor sports terrace] with embedded, nearly invisible, technology, representing the realisation of the futuristic dream of seamless technology integrated into daily life.”

Mann says. “We are on the cusp of a world where the virtual can enhance the everyday.”  The Sports Terrace provides an immersive 3 dimensional experience that provides the perfect fusion between the virtual and the real, all thanks to latest glass technology and integrated virtual gaming technology.

Covered glass boards upheld by innovative hardware equipment, with minimal joints and massive size, are utilized to empower greatest transparency. They also work as sliding or rotating doorways, enabling the ambiance to be open to the outside or to be completely encased.Mann clarifies that the utilization of operable glass, “breaks down the barriers between inside and out by bringing technology outdoors”.

Mann continues, “the IST layers the virtual world over the real world… It enables users to keep the positive aspects of playing outside with the digital advantages of an enhanced virtual environment… The switchable glass eliminates the need to choose between the virtual and the real; instead, users can layer the two. This also creates the possibility for interaction across the glass between the audience and the players.”

Immersive Sports Terrace opens a communication between the environment as well as empower individuals in distant locations to share health and wellness goals. It flawlessly integrates exercise and community into your day to day life. Health enthusiasts can consult professional coaches and practice with other fellow enthusiasts in changing landscape on the screen.

According to Mann, ” With the IST, we are scaling up the digital world so that we can occupy it physically as well as communally… The IST will enable people to interact with and occupy a variety of environments while improving their health, skills and social connections.”
