the white paneling of the outer skin captures a sense of movement, translated from the motion of the ‘whirl’ common in dances of the caucasu. furthermore, it provides a white canvas for light illuminations during the evenings. altogether, the structure measures at 30,000 square meters and has the capacity to seat 20,000; comprised over two decks. a further 10,000 square meter commercial space will be integrated to attract locals to the stadium when it is not in use for games and matches.
