after barcelona football club voted in favor of remaining at the historic camp nou stadium, plans have been unveiled for a revamped arena to be built on the site of the existing structure. the proposal includes improved functionality and accessibility, re-establishing the building as a new icon for the club, its fans and the city. the development will increase the capacity of the venue to 105,000 with a new steeper first tier of terracing vastly improving spectator views. a new ring of corporate boxes will bring in additional revenue, with a total of 5,700 luxury seats incorporated within the design. internal circulation routes will also be reprogrammed, with escalators and elevators used to reach the upper levels of the stadium.

 

the work on the exterior will be largely done through throughout the season, while construction on the terraces will be completed in the summer, thus minimizing the inconvenience caused to supporters. the announcement spells the end of norman foster’s involvement with the scheme, after he presented his plans for the project in 2007. if construction is approved, work would begin in may 2017, with a tentative completion date scheduled for february 2021.
