In a certain respect, sports serve as a modern stand-in for the ancient battles that were waged hand-to-hand, and the Dolni Brezany Sports Hall references this connection between ancient warriors and modern athletes. The hall, which is in the Czech town of the same name and was designed by local studio Sporadical, features a smooth, bulbous facade covered in overlapping metal tiles, making it look like an intricate piece of a knight's armor.

On the interior, Dolni Brezany Sports Hall looks much like any other public sports center. It features a synthetic floor covered in lines for several different activities, including basketball, indoor soccer, badminton, and volleyball, and it has bleachers on one side so that it can host games with spectators as well as regular pickup games.
