The National Gymnastics Training Building in Alicante is representative of Miralles's regionalism. The C.N.A.R. initiated a new building type in which a large audience focuses on individual performances, and therefore requires a setting less formal than that associated with team sports. The building, composed of a series of interacting elements; ground-scape, sky-scape and walls of varying permeability, relates closely to its site, growing out of the hill and making visual and physical connections to all sides.
