Staidums of the World
November 19, 2013
Here at Banagher Precast Concrete, we specialise in precast stadia systems. We have created this infographic to the highlight some of the world’s stadiums that we found to be the most interesting both in terms of design and structure.
We have included some of the worlds most famous and beautiful stadia such as the Olympiastadion of Munich (formerly the home of Bayern Munich FC), the Oita stadium Japan, Twickenham in the UK and of course we couldn’t forget our own Irish stadia, the Aviva stadium Dublin and Thomand Park Limerick, both of which feature Banagher Precast Concrete systems.
From looking at the infographic it is clear that all of these stadiums have a clear distinct structural design. They are designed to be architecturally different and to stand out from the rest and that is what appeals to us the most.
For example, Zhong stadium Shanghai was built to resemble a flower. The roof itself is automatic and from above, it looks like a flower opening it’s petals. We think this stadium is both incredibly beautiful and functional at the same time. Another example is the Beijing National Aquatics centre which has an incredible multi-coloured bubble design that covers its entire exterior!
We have included some of the most beautiful stadiums from across the world for you to see, with capacity ranging from as little as 13,000 to an breath taking 91,000 spectators! Clearly it is not the size of the stadium that matters here, rather the magnificence and beauty of the structure itself.
If you have found this infographic as much fun to read as we had creating it then please share and re-post as often as you like.
