The GMP Architekten concept sees double-tiered stands covered with large, 80-meter high dome. Covered with translucent panels the stadium should resemble a gemstone.
Audience should see skyboxes on both sides of the pitch, on two floors. Altogether this gives 1,200 luxurious seats, almost double the FIFA expectations.
During the preparation of the design briefs for the stadia a series of consultations were undertaken with representatives from the local communities, business groups, football clubs, the organising committee and local authorities. Experience of construction of other sports venues was applied in the form of design guidance from FIFA, as well as learning from similar projects around the world. Information about the project and construction process is published on a regular basis online and is publically available through a knowledge sharing platform to ensure knowledge transfer from one project to another.
