OMA and LOLA finalize design of new feyenoord stadium in rotterdam

OMA and LOLA landscape architects have submitted the refined design of the feyenoord stadium in rotterdam. the original design of the arena — revealed in december 2018 — has been optimized to ensure a timely and cost-effective delivery. situated at a new location along the river nieuwe maas, accessible by public transport, the stadium is described as a ‘future-proof infrastructure’ for both football and other activities in the surrounding communities.

the stadium proposed by OMA and feyenoord football club has been designed as an ensemble of essential elements — including the stand, circulation cores, the structure, and functional spaces — each of which have been designed to maximize performance. specifically, the three-tier stand increases the stadium’s capacity to 63,000, while placing spectators as close to the field as possible for an intimate match experience. the bowl-shaped steel structure — a diagrid that requires less structural steel than a conventional steel frame — is the primary structure supporting the stand and its roof.

‘all the stadium’s elements have been assembled to form a building that is more than the sum of its parts: logical and functional as de kuip — the football club’s home for eight decades — and offering one of the best sightlines among stadiums of this scale, the new venue is a truly open stadium with a public concourse on the main entry level,’ explains OMA. ‘designed in close collaboration with LOLA, the concourse is the heart of the public space. the landscape concept consists of strong access points from both sides of the city and reinforcement of the continuous river bank, including a tidal park and urban connection with the ring road.’

on match days, crowds will gather on the concourse before entering the stadium, while the concourse design will also distribute several slow traffic routes along the water and into the surrounding neighborhoods. this space acts as a raised square that remains active throughout the year.

the new stadium is part of the feyenoord city masterplan, developed by OMA and LOLA, which was adopted by the rotterdam city council in october 2019. OMA has now submitted the building permit and finalized detailed design for the feyenoord stadium. construction is scheduled to begin in 2022, with the building’s completion planned for 2025. the project is led by OMA managing partner david gianotten, with associate kees van casteren and project architects shinji takagi and sandra bsat.
