italian football club AC milan has presented plans for a new stadium to be constructed in the portello area of the city. designed in collaboration with arup, the arena will be part of a larger regional development that intends to remain open seven days a week. the stadium will boast a total matchday capacity of 48,000 and includes a hotel, a sports college, a variety of restaurants and integrated areas of public greenery.

in order to reduce the visual impact on the existing urban fabric, the structure will be partially positioned underground, and will not exceed a total height of 30 meters. the venue can be easily accessed by public transport and is forecast to create 1,000 jobs during the construction phase alone. developers hope that the stadium will be ready within three and a half years – ahead of the 2018/2019 serie A season.

  • refreshing to see a stadium design that demonstrates some discipline and is more than just an amorphic blob
