  • from the inside, aren’t they all pretty much the same?

  • six japanese selected in a world-wide competition in Japan …

    PP says:
  • “six japanese selected in a world-wide competition in Japan …”
    so what?
    would you care to elaborate?

    the two projects that i liked most are part of “those six” . . .

    inev says:
  • I see 4 japanese teams, not 6?

    L says:
  • GMP FTW!

    aue says:
  • the real problem is, the grass doesn’t grow. not enough light reaches the ground.
    the second problem is mixing track and pitch sports mean spectators are not involved.
    The viewing experience of them all looks miserable.
    None of them look like they address any of the real issues concerned with spectating.

    mackenzie collins says:
  • They dont have all the interior images here, several designs include extending seating further when holding football or rugby matches. And no matter what roof void, you will inevitably need extra artificial UV lighting given the region and the requirements of around 4 hours (if i recall right) of direct sunlight per day.

    ctl says:
  • JAPAN 1-2 BRAZIL…SANAA’s style..

    rw says:
  • SANAA and Cox stadiums look pretty innovative; Hadid’s version is just a stolen replica of the Cowboys stadium with a fancier skin/site design. The rest are not even close in my opinion. I really like what Cox did. I would have comissioned them, with the condition that they consult with a local Japanese design firm to beef up the styling.

    jbarnes says:
  • Zaha design is on top
