30 Innovative Stadium Designs

From Bronze Facade Stadiums to Sunken-Bowl Stadiums

— August 16, 2014 — Art & Design
As the world comes down from the high of World Cup fever, this collection of stadium designs will help to highlight some of the simplistic and complex directions being taken when it comes to the sporting arenas around the world. As popular as the very sporting events themselves, stadium designs are far and wide an innovative realm, specifically when it comes to events like the Olympics or World Cup as the repurposing of the space needs to be priority one; what good is a single use structure?

Here, the stadium designs highlighted place a distinct focus on the ways that we're pushing forward to deliver sports entertainment events that are both able to be attended by tens of thousands and that serve multiple verticals as opposed to one or few.
