gmp architects designs the stadium of FC krasnodar, a football club in russia’s top league,with fluted pilasters of almost white roman travertine arranged in a regular pattern, and a shape that references the form of ancient amphitheaters. the stadium stands on a plinth next to the club’s football academy in a generous park landscape, which is also designed by gmp, and has the capacity of 33,000 spectators.

architects von gerkan, marg and partners (gmp) have combined the archetypal form of the facade and bowl with a lightweight and highly efficient ring cable roof structure, resulting in a contrasting design and a charged atmosphere of the football arena with the help of its state-of-the-art media technology. the stadium features the world’s first 360-degree screen of its kind with a 4,700 sq-meter, high-resolution video screen that enables a new quality of medial presentation of football events, from the players’ arrival on the pitch to goal celebrations and the final whistle. the roof’s two-layer covering membrane consists of PTFE-coated glass-fiber mesh, creating a three-dimensional shape that integrates technical services such as floodlighting, and heating for the spectator stands. the design has been adapted by the firm’s russian partners in nizhny novgorod, volgograd and samara with various deviations in terms of size, construction, and spatial effects, however gmp’s design for the geometry of the grandstand bowls was implemented unchanged in all three projects.
