Cutting edge design firm NBBJ has finalized their proposal for the new football stadium in Dalian, China. This thing is off the hook! Designed around the idea of organic architecture, it is modeled much like a garden, where only that which is needed is provided…
The exterior walls are modeled from the idea that they are folded from the ground and covered in greenery that changes according to the seasons. The walls would contain the venue, providing 40,000 seats while still leaving the ends of the venue open to views of the mountains and ocean. The flexible cable roof is made of interwoven fabric to provide protection from the elements to the audiences. Let’s hope this model sets a new standard for green design, as NBBJ intends it to do.
